How to Register

Registering for a course at Tufts as a visiting student only takes a few minutes. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact 617-627-3454 or courses@tufts.edu.

  1. Search or browse for the course you'd like to enroll in.
  2. Add a course section to your cart
  3. Check out. Be sure you choose the correct credit type, since this may affect the tuition rate. Many of our courses are available for undergraduate credit, graduate credit, and non-credit.
    • If you are an Alumni Auditor, you will need to complete a very brief “Alumni Auditor” application form before enrolling. This form is on the platform and you’ll be guided to it during the checkout process.
  4. Create a Student Profile in our enrollment system to complete the check-out process
    1. You will create a username and password at this point that will give you access to your Student Portal on our enrollment system.
    2. Access to the enrollment system will allow you to easily enroll and pay for classes, drop classes, request refunds, and submit applications when needed.
  5. Complete your check out process by paying in full with a credit card.
  6. Validate your Tufts University student credentials
    1. When your credentials are ready (usually a few business days after enrolling in a course), you will receive three emails from the Tufts' Student Information System:
      1. Email 1: Directions on how to proceed
      2. Email 2: Your Tufts Student ID Number
      3. Email 3: A link to Tufts Tools
    2. Open the link you receive and enter your Tufts Student ID Number (from Email 2) to create your Tufts Student Password
  7. Accessing Tufts' Student Information System (SIS)
    1. As a visiting Tufts student, SIS is where you can access the course schedule, request a transcript, and view final grades.
    2. Please call 617-627-3454 for any questions or issues

You will receive emails from Tufts throughout the process and you may always contact us at any time with questions.

Note for returning students: We are excited to have you back! Although your Tufts Username from your previous enrollment still exists, you will need to reactivate it by going through the enrollment process described above.
