Parents and family are important partners in the success of Tulane students. Your support and guidance outside the classroom is key to your son or daughter's academic and personal success. We also recognize that college is a time of transition for students and families. Students learn to be more independent and explore their interests while parents and families adjust to changing relationships.
Academic advisors are here to help students during this transition to develop their academic interests and to locate resources they need to succeed. We encourage parents and families to keep open lines of communication to students as well, engaging in conversation about their interests, what they are learning, and new experiences they might wish to share. We all want to work together to help students make good decisions and grow as individuals.

We hope all of our students share their progress with parents and family, but if you have questions, you may contact your son or daughter's academic advisor. Be aware that federal law prohibits us from discussing specific academic information unless we have a release of information form signed by the student. Without this document, we can only discuss general university policies and procedures.
Tulane also asks faculty to report mid-term grades for first-year students. These are available to students through their Gibson online accounts, and are a great way for freshmen to assess how they're doing.
Academic advisors do not have access to students' financial information, so we recommend contacting the Office of Financial Aid for any questions about scholarships and other aid packages. For billing questions, contact Accounts Receivable.
In additional to academic advising, Tulane provides several resources to help students succeed. These include the Tutoring Center, the Career Center, the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library, and of course, individual faculty members. Select the "Need Help" button above for links and descriptions of important resources.
Students may transfer course credit from other accredited, four-year degree granting institutions, provided they have each course evaluated and approved by an academic department. Consult the transfer credit procedure for details.
Pay careful attention to the academic calendar and final exam schedule for each semester. Avoid booking flights before the last day of exams since flight reservations are not a valid excuse for missing or rescheduling an exam.
