Academic Progression at Tufts University

Tufts University is among the more prestigious schools in the country. In keeping with that reputation, it holds students to high standards of academic excellence. You probably already know this. After all, it took no small amount of brains and hard work to get into Tufts in the first place, right? Getting in is no guarantee you'll graduate, though. For that, you're going to have to work even harder.

High standards are important. Unreasonable standards—that's another thing altogether. No one's perfect, after all, not even a Tufts student. You're bound to slip up every once in a while, whether that means oversleeping and missing that important econ final or just never quite finding the time to get through Macbeth.
