ENROLLMENT INSTRUCTIONS: What to do now that you have been admitted

1. Confirm Enrollment and Pay Deposit

To confirm your enrollment, please complete online Decision Reply Form and then pay your $500 enrollment deposit online or with a check by April 20, 2018. This matriculation deposit will be credited to your student account upon enrollment at Fletcher. 

To access the form log in to your online application. You will need your username and password. This is the same account you used to check the status of your application. To view your decision letter and pay your deposit, log into your account and click “View update.” This will take you to your decision letter. To confirm your enrollment and pay your deposit, click "Decision Reply Form" at the bottom of your Application Status page, which will allow you to confirm your intent to enroll. Upon returning to your Application Status page, you will see a "Submit payment for 500.00 USD" link, through which you can pay your deposit. Please be aware that your enrollment deposit is due by April 20, 2018. By paying your deposit you are confirming your enrollment at Fletcher only and you should not deposit at another institution. If you are planning on pursuing a joint degree, please complete the joint degree form available on the forms section of this website.

2. Send your official transcripts (if you have not already done so)

Official transcripts from all institutions from which you earned a degree, or from which you took courses that contributed to a degree (if not reflected on degree-granting institution’s transcript), should be sent to our office for credential verification purposes. Please arrange for your official transcripts (and certified English translations, if necessary) from previously attended colleges/universities to be sent from the academic institutions' Registrar's Offices and mailed (or emailed) directly to us as soon as possible before your matriculation. Electronic transcripts sent from your institution's registrar's office can be directed to fletcheradmissions@tufts.edu. Hard copies of transcripts should be sent to the following address:

      The Fletcher School Office of Admissions
      160 Packard Avenue 
      Medford, MA 02155 

Please note that even if you scanned an official transcript into your original application, we will still need to receive an official paper hardcopy.

3. Get your Tufts email account and Tufts ID number

Shortly after confirming your enrollment, you will receive detailed instructions on how to set up a Tufts email account and obtain a Tufts ID number, which will allow you to receive important updates and information from Fletcher. Please be sure to keep your Tufts ID number for your records. You will need your Tufts ID to create your e-Billing account.

4.  E-Billing

E-Billing is what you will use to pay your tuition. You will receive an email from Tufts Student Services on how to set up your e-Billing account. In July 2018 your student tuition bill for the Fall 2018 semester will be accessible electronically. You will receive an email notification when a new bill has been generated, and you will have the ability to pay your bill online. You will not receive a paper tuition bill. If you have any questions about e-Billing, please contact Tufts Student Services directly at 617-627-2000.

5. Visit the Orientation Website

In June, you will be sent a link to the Orientation website via email. The Orientation Website will have important information about the mandatory Orientation beginning on August 27, 2018, as well as forms that must be returned to the Registrar’s Office, such as:

  • Registration information and pre-registration information (Please note that registration for classes takes place after orientation during the first 5 days of classes)
  • Information on selecting a faculty advisor
  • University Health Services Office required forms
  • Fall 2018 course schedule
