The Office of the Registrar maintains and provides academic records for all current and past students of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine as well as verifying student enrollment for the National Student Clearinghouse for current students, and degree verification for graduates of our school.
Academic records, which include, but are not limited to, academic transcripts, certification of enrollment, degree and graduation date, may be withheld from any party requesting this information should the student or graduate be in default of a student loan or owe a balance to the university.

Prior to requesting an official transcript, you are advised to check your unofficial transcript for any missing grades or incompletes. Obtain your unofficial transcript by going to SIS Portal (see instructions below).
To obtain an official copy of your TUSDM transcript, follow the instructions below based on how you wish to have your transcript delivered:
- SIS Portal – Request an official transcript to be sent via first-class USPS mail to you or a third party or to be picked up on site at the Registrar’s Office during on-site business hours. Use your Tufts UTLN and password to log into the portal. Go to Tufts Tools if you need to reset your SIS password or forgot your UTLN. If you are having trouble accessing SIS, complete a Transcript Request Form and email it to Dental_Registrar@tufts.edu. If your official transcript must be included with other documents when sent, please send documents to Dental_Registrar@tufts.edu. No fees apply for transcripts requested through SIS Portal or using the Transcript Request Form. Official transcripts can’t be sent electronically or via FEDEX if requested through the SIS portal or using the Transcript Request Form.

Name Change Requests
The Office of Enrollment Services – Registrar’s Office is responsible for maintaining a student’s or former student’s legal name in official school records. Academic records that contain the legal name of the student or former student include transcripts, a diploma and/or certificate. Currently enrolled students, former students and graduates can request that their official school records be updated to reflect a new name provided they submit proof of their legal name change. In order to request a name change on your official school records, please submit at least one of the following items to the Enrollment Services – Registrar’s Office:
- Signed copy of Social Security Card that reflects legal name (required for federal student aid recipients currently enrolled); or
- Copy of biography page of passport; or
- Copy of court issued document showing the new and old names; or
- MA-issued driver’s license
Please note that if the student is currently enrolled and is receiving federal student financial aid, including federal student loans, the only acceptable proof of legal name change is a signed copy of the student’s social security card reflecting the student’s new name.
Updates to records will be made at the discretion of the Office of Enrollment Services – Registrar’s Office and additional records may be requested or accepted. Please contact the Office of Enrollment Services – Registrar’s Office with questions.
