If you’re working toward a bachelor’s degree, your first stop is our admission office. Last year, more than 150 international students pursued undergraduate degrees at Tulane. Let our counselors help you with entry requirements, academics, living in New Orleans, tuition, and more. (Don’t rule us out based on cost: We offer up to $20,000 in need-based financial aid to international students who qualify and who have not already been awarded that amount or more in merit scholarships.)
Each Tulane graduate program administers its own admissions process. If you’re pursuing a master’s degree or doctorate, contact the school or department you’d like to enter for more information.
You can also contact the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies for general information about the graduate experience, including fellowships, grants and postdoctoral training opportunities that could help defray the cost of your studies.
Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is just 14 miles from campus, and more than a dozen airlines fly here. Getting here? Big easy, indeed.
Book a campus tour!
We know: Everybody says an in-person visit is best because virtual tours don’t do their campus justice. If you’re just too far away to get here, though, take heart: Our reality is so spectacular that the video still shines.
Need a hand getting a visa, finding housing, improving your English or anything else related to your new life in the U.S.? Get in touch with our Office of International Students and Scholars—they’ve probably helped somebody else with exactly the same issue.
Life at Tulane and in New Orleans
Our international students make lifelong friendships with each other and with U.S. students. Tulane works to connect our students to life at the university and in New Orleans. We have dozens of International Student Organizations and lots of fun and meaningful International Student Programming.
Incoming undergraduates will live on campus in residence halls with their U.S. peers. Graduate students and their families may apply for housing at the Papillon Apartments in the Lower Garden District or at Deming Pavilion downtown or in the Global Collective, our new graduate student housing option, located on the uptown campus. Many graduate students also choose to live off-campus to better engage with New Orleans.
We’re sure you’ll enjoy exploring New Orleans, but when you’re feeling homesick, you’ll find lots of ways to connect with your home country. New Orleans is full of international festivals, restaurants and markets, including Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian and Latin American.
