Undergraduate Admission

Transfer Students

The transfer student admission process works differently than the initial college admission process. The information below, as well as on the other accompanying transfer pages, will guide you through the Tulane transfer process.

Before you apply, we recommend you take a close look at the transfer student application.

Visiting Campus
The best way to find out what awaits you at Tulane is to visit campus.  On our visit page, you may sign up for a campus tour or other special visit programs. 

Application Requirements
To be eligible for admission to Tulane, all transfer students must be in good standing at the most recent educational institution attended. In order to complete the transfer application process, you must submit the following materials:

Scholarships and Financial Aid
We understand that financial aid is an important consideration in the transfer decision. Tulane awards merit scholarships and need-based financial aid to make Tulane affordable and a great value. Transfer students may be offered a merit scholarship, need-based financial aid, or a combination of both after being admitted and submitting the necessary forms. For more information, please visit our financial aid for transfer students page.

International Transfer Students
If you have taken university courses at a non-American, international university, it is necessary that your university courses be evaluated by World Educational Services (WES). This ensures a fair and accurate evaluation of all international transcripts sent to Tulane. Please note that this evaluation may be used by any other university to which you have applied and, ultimately, to any graduate program you may pursue in the future.

International transfer students who have successfully completed 30 credit hours at an American university may waive the TOEFL/IELTS requirement. Click here for more information on applying to Tulane as an international student.
