Stipends & Documentation


Important Information about your Stipend

Students who have been awarded a 12-month stipend are paid on the 15th and 30th of the month (or slightly adjusted for holidays or weekends), 12 months per year.

Under the 1986 Federal Tax Reform Act, a stipend is considered taxable income and the University is required to withhold income tax from your check.

In order to be paid, you must complete online W-4 and Direct Deposit forms. You must also complete an I-9s, which is also done online. Human Resources will send information to your Tufts e-mail address about how to complete these forms, once you have been hired by the programs. The hiring process is typically completed in the third week in August. Please watch your email for information about these documents.

In order to receive your stipend, you must bring your I-9 documentation to Orientation for review by a representative of Tufts Human Resources. Do not forget to bring this information.

Note that a social security number is required in order to complete your payroll paperwork. International students who do not already have a social security number must meet with the International Affairs Office in order to start that process.
