GSAS Return to Tufts Program

Want to become a "Double Jumbo"? 

The Return to Tufts program (formerly called the Tufts Plus program) for recent alumni makes the application process for the Graduate School’s master's programs simpler, and offers generous tuition scholarships to admitted students. 

Return to Tufts Benefits

  • Streamlined application process
    • GRE requirement waived
    • Only two letters of recommendation are required–We strongly suggest one is from an academic advisor.
  • Application fee waived
  • Enrollment deposit waived
  • Complete your degree faster: you may reserve graduate-level courses from your Tufts undergraduate studies toward your master's degree requirements (pending faculty approval). Contact the Registrar's Office for more information. Students must reserve graduate-level courses from their bachelor's degree prior to graduation using this Student Services form.


The Return to Tufts program is available for all GSAS master's programs. Eligible applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25 on a 4 point scale and have graduated from Tufts within the past three years. School of Engineering alumni who are applying to GSAS master’s programs are also eligible.  

If you are a current Tufts undergraduate student, explore the Fifth-Year Master's Program.
