Right Here, Right Now
Want a glimpse of Tulane from where you’re sitting? Check out our social media for real-time updates from campus. We have all the usual suspects: Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and a bunch of others. It’s Tulane in a nutshell: Real. Live. And it probably includes something about food, because this is New Orleans and you know it’s good to live here.
Last year, Tulane students received $118 million in grants and scholarships. That includes both merit aid, which you earn based on your academic performance, and need-based aid, which you get by demonstrating financial need.
Almost every single student with a demonstrated financial need—99.3 percent—received need-based aid. On average, students with demonstrated need received more than $40,000 each. In all, 79 percent of our first-year students were offered aid.
Want merit aid? You don’t have to do anything—all applicants are considered. If you’d like to be considered for need-based aid, though, you must fill out a FAFSA form.
Undergraduate and Graduate Admission
Nearly half of our students are undergraduates. They’re here for the programs (we offer 70 majors and minors), they’re here for the city (The Princeton Review says we’re the #2 College City, woohoo! We think they’re only off by one.), they’re here because they’ve heard it’s great when a professor actually knows you by name (average class size: 21), they’re here because it’s easy to get away (a third of our students study abroad). Whatever their reason, we’ll help you find yours.
Our admission office works directly with undergrads. Every school at Tulane, though, sets its own graduate admission policies. If you’re coming for graduate work, reach out to those schools directly.
