Changes to Tufts’ Testing Requirements and Supplement

The 2018-2019 school year brings some important changes to our application process.

First, our testing requirements have changed. Applicants must now submit either the ACT or the SAT only; we no longer require subject tests to be submitted with the SAT.

In addition, we will accept self-reported test scores in the application process and only require official scores once a student has decided to enroll.

Second, we have given our supplement an overhaul. Instead of three questions, we have moved to just two required questions which we hope will allow applicants to show us more about who they are and what’s important to them. While we no longer ask students to “let your life speak”, our hope is that the expanded “Why Tufts” question will provide the opportunity for applicants to let us know why Tufts will be a good fit for them.
