Orientation is designed to assist you in your transition to The Fletcher School. The information sessions and skills workshops will help familiarize you with Fletcher and Tufts and the services that we offer. These sessions will also help you plan your academic program. The social activities will offer opportunities to meet and start building relationships with your classmates.
Important information will be covered during the Fall 2013 Orientation that will not be offered at other times of the year. Participation in the Fall 2013 Orientation is mandatory. Orientation begins 9:00 AM, Monday, August 26, 2013. The mandatory sessions end 5:30 PM, Friday, August 30, 2013.
Equivalency Exams will be administered during the Fall 2013 Orientation beginning 9:30 AM, Friday, August 30, 2013. Equivalency Exams are administered, without exception, only twice during the academic year.
