DACA Applicants

In the spirit of our mission to train physicians who will work and serve in a diverse local, national, and global community, Tufts University School of Medicine welcomes applications from undocumented individuals who qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). These applicants will be considered with U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents for admission to Tufts University School of Medicine. Tufts University School of Medicine does not consider an applicant’s financial circumstances in the selection process. However, DACA students must be prepared to absorb the high cost of US medical education, and have a full understanding that DACA students are not eligible for traditional US educational funding including federal and/or institutional loans and scholarships. Accepted DACA students will be expected to have proof of funding for all years of their education prior to matriculation. DACA applicants who are accepted to Tufts University School of Medicine will join a supportive community that strives to produce socially and culturally competent physicians who will care for a diverse and ever evolving patient population.
