Tufts VPN and SIS

For Tufts University staff who do not have a student, faculty, or advisor role: If you are working off-campus, you will need to connect to Tufts’ SSL VPN  before you can connect to SIS.

Students, faculty, and advisors can access their content without a VPN connection.



We have created the following types of documentation to help guide you through fundamental system processes using SIS (hover over thumbnail to view larger image):
