Tufts Graduate School Information and How to Apply

The Office of Graduate Admissions serves the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS). From the office's website, visitors can find information about applying to graduate programs, such as:

The GRE standard tests are required for M.S. and Ph.D. applicants and the GRE subject test is recommended for all applicants. Applications for admission into any of our programs can be found here, though earlier applications are strongly encouraged. The first decisions will be announced by about March 1; later applications will be considered until the program has been filled. We encourage you to contact our committee to verify that your folder has been forwarded to the mathematics department; if any part of the application (such as a transcript, a letter of recommendation, or the fee) is missing or mislaid we will not receive your application and will not be able to consider you for admission or a teaching assistantship until it is found. While we are able to consider late applications for admission, a delay can prevent you from receiving financial aid.

Graduate Student Handbook: Published annually, the Graduate Student Handbook contains important dates, policies and procedures, requirements, and graduation information concerning current Arts, Sciences, and Engineering graduate students.

Funding Opportunities: TThere are a variety of outside funding opportunities for Arts and Sciences graduate students. Students interested in learning more about these opportunities, which are both general and discipline-specific, should visit the graduate website.

Take A Class: You don't need to be a graduate student to take Tufts graduate courses. The Graduate Career Advancement Program (GCAP) was created for people who want access to superior graduate-level courses but don't need or want a graduate degree. GCAP students take the same classes as our graduate students and may enroll, for either credit or audit, in up to four undergraduate or graduate courses per semester.

Graduate Student News and Events: Read about current Arts, Sciences, and Engineering graduate students, alumni, and faculty. The graduate events calendar includes upcoming Professional Development workshops, symposia, and social events on campus.
