Additional Steps to Prepare for graduation
October 6, 2022
Dear Student,
As we have shared previously, the first step to prepare for graduation is to apply for graduation in SIS. If you have already applied, great! If not, make sure to do that as soon as possible. As you continue to work on your graduation materials, there are additional steps to help prepare for graduation. Please review the information below and visit the Apply for Graduation website for more details.
Senior Honors Thesis
If you are writing a Senior Honors Thesis, you must fill out a candidate form by October 20, 2022. You can find more information online at go.tufts.edu/seniorhonorsthesis
Course Substitutions
If you wish to count a course towards a requirement for which it is not already listed, you will need to submit a petition. You can find more information and the applicable forms on our website. Make sure to choose the correct form for your degree program (Engineering, Arts & Sciences, or BFA).
Reserving Courses for Graduate Study
If you are reserving courses for graduate school, you must fill out the corresponding form. You can find more information and the appropriate forms online at go.tufts.edu/reservesharecourses
Final Transcripts
Transcripts are sealed after graduation. At that time, no further changes can be made. Please be sure to check your transcript to ensure enrollment, test credits, transfer credits, and grade changes are all correct.
Graduation Information Sessions
Additionally, the Advising Deans and Student Services are holding Graduation Application Information Sessions, where you can learn about applying for graduation, submitting your graduation packet, and ask any questions you may have about preparing your materials or graduation in general.
