WELCOME CLASS OF FALL 2020! HAPPY REGISTRATION!
First-year students: Now that you have participated in the advising sessions for your department/division and are connecting with your academic advisor, beginning July 20, please log in to SIS at go.tufts.edu/sis and enroll in your Fall 2020 courses.
Continuing students: Please connect with your academic advisor to finalize your Fall 2020 course schedule plans and log in to SIS at go.tufts.edu/sis and adjust your course schedule as needed.
First step for ALL students that need to enroll in Fall 2020 courses or adjust their fall course schedule: The University has placed a Hold on all students accounts in SIS that are missing their Current Address (and/or an Emergency Contact) in their academic record. The Hold blocks your ability to enroll in courses via SIS. Federal reporting requirements state that Tufts University must be able to identify the location (in-state, out-of-state, and outside the U.S.) of students who are taking all or part of their courses online; entering/confirming your Current Address in SIS is especially important for all students this fall. This information will also help our faculty best accommodate your flexible learning needs for the Fall 2020 semester.

- If you did not yet complete your Qualifying Examination requirement, you need to enroll in NUTR 0399.
- If you passed your Qualifying Examination, you need to enroll in NUTR 0403.
- If you do not enroll in either of these courses you will not be in full-time enrollment status and a late registration fee will automatically be posted to your account in SIS and your loan deferments may be impacted.
- If you will be matriculated at Friedman in Fall 2020 (paying tuition to Friedman in the fall) you need to use the cross-registration feature in SIS to enroll in your other school's courses (e.g., PH, UEP, etc.) for Fall 2020.
- If you use the SIS cross-registration feature for enrollment in the courses that you need at your other Tufts school, the system will bypass the instructor approval and go directly to the relevant registrars for approval and enrollment processing.
MNSP (NUTB) COURSES
- Using the Qualtrics online form below you may enroll in Friedman’s Master of Nutrition Science and Policy (MNSP) degree program for elective semester hour units as long as you have the pre-requisites fulfilled and can commit to participation in the course's requried MNSP remote residency component.
- You will NOT be charged additional tuition when you enroll in an MNSP course.
- MNSP courses require attendance at the associated course session during the Fall 2020 MNSP Remote Residency.
DIRECTED STUDY COURSES
Click here for the directed study course proposal form (Friedman's registrar will enroll you since you cannot independently enroll in a Directed Study course via SIS).
- Deadline to submit the directed study course proposal form for Fall 2020: September 22, 2020.
- You may not use the mechanism of enrollment in a directed study course with a supervising Friedman faculty member in order to enroll in a course that is offered at a school that's not an approved cross-registration partner (no reciprocity) with the Friedman School.
- * Update from Tufts International Center: https://icenter.tufts.edu/blog/2020/07/14/trump-administration-withdraws-july-6-ice-guidance/
- You need to enroll full-time each semester; full-time is defined as a minimum of 9 semester hour units per semester.

CROSS-REGISTRATION – IMPORTANT ABOUT FALL 2020
- Click here to review a more detailed overview of the cross-registration process. Friedman’s cross-registration partners (Tufts, Boston Consortium - Boston University, Boston College, and Brandeis, and Harvard School of Public Health) do not follow the same academic calendar as Friedman's academic calendar so please be sure to review the Host School’s academic calendar for their add/drop deadlines, and other academic dates and deadlines, final exams, and holidays.
- Please be patient with the cross-registration process—most schools (including Tufts) will not review/process cross-registration requests until close to the start of the Fall 2020 semester.
- Also, please note The Fletcher School does not have a pre-registration period so their courses will not be available to request via SIS for cross-registration until the first week of August 2020.
- Click here to check out Friedman students' cross-registration enrollment trends by degree program from Spring 2018 through Fall 2019.
- Fall 2020 tuition, semester fees, and health insurance have been billed to your account in SIS during and payment is due the first week of August 2020.
- To avoid a late fee, tuition and semester fees must be remitted in advance of the first day of Fall 2020 classes (September 8, 2020).
