Admission & Aid

There are 13,600 students at Tulane. Every last one of them has been exactly where you are right now: Wondering if Tulane is the right fit. Wondering if the programs here are what you’re looking for. And—­let’s be honest—wondering how you’re going to pay for this.

We helped them. And we’ll help you.

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.

Financial Aid

Through our extensive merit-based and need-based scholarship programs, Tulane pays on average 40 percent of the actual cost of tuition and fees for each student.

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

More than half of our students are undergraduates. They’re here for the programs (we offer over 75 majors and minors), they’re here for the city (The Princeton Review says we’re the #1 College City, woohoo! No surprise there.), they’re here because they’ve heard it’s great when a professor actually knows you by name (small class sizes are the norm), 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.
