Somerville

Somerville and Tufts reach new agreement

Continue reading below

Somerville High School students will no longer have to pay fees to apply to Tufts University under an agreement reached with the city. The university will also increase its annual payments to Somerville from $175,000 to $275,000 per year for a total of $1.375 million over the next five years under a new agreement announced by Mayor Joseph Curtatone’s office in a press release. Tufts, which has its main campus in Medford and Somerville, will waive the $70 application fee for students at Somerville High who apply. The university will also offer SAT preparation tutoring and essay-writing workshops for applying students, as well as workshops for teachers preparing recommendations for them, according to the city. Curtatone said the agreement provides funding to the city for services used by the Tufts community, such as police and fire, and he praised the university and its president, Anthony P. Monaco, for being a “terrific community partner.”
