Tufts Pre-College Programs offers opportunities for rising high school juniors and seniors to enroll in college-level courses as well as programs with interest in Foundations of Law and Ethics, Bioinformatics through Sequencing, Writing, and Health Science. Courses may be taken for credit or no credit. Apply today!
The College Courses for Seniors program is offered exclusively to rising high school seniors. For six weeks, you will be a member of the larger Tufts community, taking one or two Tufts University courses for academic credit. You can choose to explore a new subject - philosophy, economics, or engineering, or you can choose a favorite subject you want to delve into more deeply, such as math, a foreign language, science, or drama.
Courses are offered by the Schools of Arts and Sciences and Engineering. You will study alongside Tufts and visiting undergraduate students, earning a Tufts credit, which is the equivalent of three or four semester hours at other universities. You can request that the credit you earn at Tufts be transferred to the college you attend at a later time.
You may also enroll in online classes.
Please see our listings for the Foundations of Law and Ethics program, Writing Program, Health Science Honors program as well as the BioInformatics through Sequencing Program.
