Admission & Aid

There are 13,500 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? Head to our social media hub, TruTU, to see videos, catch up on our feeds (All the usual suspects: ­ Instagram, Twitter, Facebook ­ and a bunch of others), and read some blog posts. You can tune in for a virtual tour, too. 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

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.

Average financial aid package (including gift aid, loans and work-study) awarded to 2016-17 entering first-year students with financial need: $45,312.

With more than 1,800 students, the class of 2020 shattered all expectations by its sheer number, and is also the most academically qualified and selective Tulane class ever.

About a third of undergraduate students study abroad. Programs range for as little as 4 week to a full year. Students can choose from more than 80 university-approved courses of study in about 30 countries.
