Reapplication and Deferrals

I was not offered admission to Fletcher. May I reapply?
Applicants who were not offered admission or who declined an offer of admission are welcome to reapply. The Admissions Office maintains applications for a period of three years. The reapplication process for those wishing to reapply within the three year timeframe is simplified. More information regarding the re-application process can be found on theĀ application policies section of our website.
Is it possible to get feedback on my last application?
Applicants who are intending to reapply to The Fletcher School in the future, may request feedback on a previous application. To request feedback, send an email request to the Office of Admissions at fletcheradmissions@tufts.edu.
Can I defer my enrollment to Fletcher?

Admitted students may request a one-semester or one-year deferral. Deferrals requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and may be granted for a unique employment opportunity, special fellowship program, approved joint degree program, or family or medical emergency. The granting of deferrals beyond one year is extremely rare.

Deferral requests must be submitted in writing to the Director of Admissions at The Fletcher School, and should be made before May 1 of the year you apply. Because students sometimes face unanticipated changes in their circumstances, deferral requests will be accepted until June 1 on a case-by-case basis. If a deferral is granted, students must submit a $1,500 non-refundable deferral deposit, in addition to the $500 non-refundable enrollment deposit (for a total of $2,000). Admitted students whose future plans remain uncertain, or those with insufficient funds, are advised to decline the offer of admission and reapply at a later date when circumstances may be more certain or stable.
