Each summer, Tufts welcomes visiting undergraduate, graduate, professional and adult Students from across the country and around the world. Summer enrollment at Tufts is a great way to earn University credits, to make good use of your Summer, or get a head start on your next career.

Visiting students and adult learners may choose from more than 200 courses offered by the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering, the School of the Museum of Fine arts, and the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy

Summer courses are usually offered in the evening or online, allowing students to earn credit while holding an internship, working, or simply enjoying the summer. Courses are affordable tuition rates (some are discounted!) and on-campus housing.

If you are in need of a course syllabus for credit transfer purposes syllabi will be posted as a PDF along with each course listing on enroll.tufts.edu; if you do not see the syllabus for your course posted, please feel free to email summer@tufts.edu and we will provide you with the name of the course you would like to take. If you already know the name and email of your professor, you may reach out to them directly and request a syllabus for your summer course.

Online Registration

  1. Visit the Summer Course List and search or browse for the course and section you'd like to enroll in.
