Due to accreditation standards mandated by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), effective beginning spring 2015, SMFA students will no longer be able to enroll in the School’s Continuing Education courses on a credit-bearing basis. NEASC accreditation requires that coursework toward an undergraduate or graduate degree meet specific academic standards—CE courses fall outside of these educational requirements. Students interested in taking a CE course(s) may do so; however, the course(s) will not be considered part of their official SMFA-Tufts degree program or its requirements.
Should you have questions, please feel welcome to contact the Registrar's Office at 617.369.3621 or

By completing a Course Evaluation for each course you have taken you are helping to improve the SMFA! Please remember that your participation in this survey:

  • Is anonymous: Data is available to faculty member(s) only after grades have been submitted to the Registrar.
  • Is important: A high response rate and honest, thoughtful comments are essential for giving each faculty member, and every Area, useful feedback for improving their course(s) in the future.
  • Will take approximately 5–10 minutes per course. Once you start an evaluation, please finish.

Students who complete all of their Course Evaluations will be entered to win a $100 gift certificate to the School Store!

Thank you in advance for your time and participation.
