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 2015 Orientation that will not be offered at other times of the year. Participation in the Fall 2015 Orientation is mandatory. Orientation begins 9:00 AM, Monday, August 31, 2015. The mandatory sessions end 5:30 PM, Friday, September 4, 2015.
Equivalency Exams will be administered during the Fall 2014 Orientation beginning 9:30 AM, Friday, September 4, 2015. Equivalency Exams are administered, without exception, only twice during the academic year.
- You are strongly encouraged to take the Equivalency Exams during your Fall 2015 Orientation; if you miss the Equivalency Exams offered September 4, please note the next offering of the Equivalency Exams will be administered during the Spring 2016 Orientation Program in January 2016 and would require that you return early to Fletcher.
- For more information and details about how to best prepare for the Equivalency Exams, please review the Equivalency Exams Information section.
