Reapplication & Deferral Policies

Application materials will be kept for one year by the Tufts University Graduate Admissions Office. You can reactivate your application within that time by submitting a new application form and fee online. Reapplication must occur by the deadline dates provided for new applications. We encourage you to update your application with new materials when appropriate.  If you have changed jobs since applying, it is beneficial for the admissions committee to receive an additional new letter of recommendation.

If you are admitted to our programs, but unable to enroll, you may be able to defer enrollment for a maximum of one year. Students admitted to the Dual Master's Degree MSIM + MS in Engineering program are not eligible for deferral. Please reach out to our admissions team with your deferral request.
