Transfer Students Orientation & Resources

Welcome to Tulane University! We’re excited that you’ve decided to join our community. The Office of Orientation and Parent Programs is here to help you get adjusted and guide you in this new beginning. We know that, as a transfer student, you may already know how a university works in general, but we want to help you navigate the specific procedures, resources and aspects of our community. We especially encourage you to attend as many of the recommended activities as possible so that you can get integrated into campus life as quickly as possible.

If you have any questions, we hope you will reach out and contact us by e-mail at or by phone at 504-865-5180.
