Accessibility Services

In order to progress through Tufts University School of Medicine, students must be able to comply with the Tufts University School of Medicine technical standards, as well as all matriculation, promotion and graduation requirements. The Office of Student Affairs works with students to provide reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities covered under the ADA. For more information please reference Tufts University Office of Equal Opportunity.

In accordance with the Tufts University School of Medicine policies and State and Federal regulations students with documented disabilities covered under the ADA are considered eligible for accommodation after completing the required paperwork and meeting with the Associate Director of Academic Support. All accommodations must be requested in writing by the student and must be pertinent to the student’s documented disability. Accommodations must not substantially alter the program, intent, process, nor be an administrative burden to execute for the parties involved.

Please send the completed forms to the coordinator of Accessibility Services for your school.
