Incoming first-year students planning to enroll in courses elsewhere during the summer prior to arriving at Tulane must consult with the Academic Advising Center for approval.
College credits earned while a student was in high school will be considered for transfer to the university only if the courses meet the following requirements:
In order to process transfer credit for college courses taken prior to enrolling in Tulane University, Newcomb-Tulane College requires:
Following submission of these items to Newcomb-Tulane College’s Academic Advising Center, the courses will be evaluated, and if found to be equivalent to Tulane University coursework, the student’s Tulane transcript will be adjusted to reflect the academic credit awarded in transfer. Grades are not transferred with the credits.
For those courses that meet all four criteria above, list these courses on the Transfer Credit Eligibility Form, attach copies of course descriptions from college catalog(s), and send the documents to:
Center for Academic Advising
102 Richardson Building
New Orleans, LA 70118
Request an official transcript from the college or university awarding the credits and have it sent to the Center for Academic Advising at the same address.
You will also need to complete and send a Transfer Credit Eligibility Form Supplement to the Registrar's Office of any college or university from which you have earned allowable credit. The Registrar of that institution must return the completed form to the Center for Academic Advising in order for your transcripts to be evaluated.
No transfer credit can be evaluated until all of these materials have been received.
Once students have matriculated in a degree program at Tulane University, they are subject to the standard policies and procedures governing transfer credit. Thus, students wishing to take summer courses after completing high school, but before beginning their first semester at Tulane University, must follow the transfer credit procedure.
If you plan to take college courses this summer and have questions about the proper procedures, please contact one of our academic advisors for guidance.
