Candidates for admission are expected to present strong high school programs of study consisting of 18 or more academic courses taken over the four-year period as well as submit an SAT or ACT test score.
For US Citizens/Residents, we recommend your secondary school program consist of the following minimum preparation for each subject area:
|English||Four years with extensive work in reading and writing|
|Foreign Language||At least two years, preferably three of a classical or modern language|
|Science||At least three years of a laboratory science|
|Social Studies||At least three years with an emphasis on history|
At Tulane, we take a holistic approach when evaluating applications, so we do not identify minimum SAT/ACT scores. The middle 50% of the freshmen admitted for the fall of 2012 scored between 1950 and 2150 on the SAT and between 29 and 32 on the ACT.
