Admissions policies for Undocumented and DACA Students: Students with DACA or undocumented status will be considered for domestic, need-based aid like any other U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Tufts provides institutional financial aid in place of federal aid, and the FAFSA is not required to apply for aid. Like all other admitted students, Tufts will meet 100% of financial need. Students also receive support from our FIRST Resource Center.

Forms Required: FAFSA, CSS Profile

Do you meet full need? Yes

Additional financial aid information: Tufts is proud to meet 100% of demonstrated need for all admitted students regardless of citizenship status. Our financial aid packages mostly consist of grants (money you never have to pay back), and families with annual total incomes of $60,000 or less will typically not have any loans in their packages. More information can be found here. A break down of our types of aid.

Other: All Tufts students enter as "undecided" and enroll at 1 of our 3 undergraduate schools: School of Arts & Sciences, School of Engineering, and School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA). No matter which school a student enrolls into, we encourage students to explore coursework and disciplines across all 3 schools. Students can easily study broadly across many different subject areas while also diving deeply into their specific academic passions.
