Tufts University Admission 2020-2021, Requirement, Deadline & Acceptance Rate

Updated On - October 19th 2019By -  Supriya Sarkar

The Tufts University adopts a holistic approach in evaluating the applications of the students as it considers not only the academic scores but also cultural and personal background and selects students based on best of their abilities.

Tufts University has been evaluating Early Decision (ED) and Regular Decision (RD) students without giving any special preference to ED students, however, over the years it has been observed that half of the students are coming through ED.

For the class of 2022, a total of 21,501applications were received by the university, of which only 3,143 students were accepted, i.e., only 14.6% students were granted admission. The average SAT and ACT scores of admitted students was recorded as:

  • ACT: 32–35
  • SAT Evidence-based Reading and Writing: 690–760
  • SAT Math: 720–790

It may seem difficult to achieve such high scores, however, applicants may well utilize the interview session to share their high school experience and give a better insight into their competencies.
