Social Media Policy

Tulane University strives to make our campus inclusive, safe, respectful, and equitable. While we do not actively seek out applicants' social media profiles, we cannot ignore any inappropriate, disrespectful, or racist behavior that is brought to our attention; any such behavior may impact an applicant’s decision.

Homeschool Application

Homeschooled students have the same application requirements as students from traditional schools. However, we do have some recommendations for the admission process based on successful homeschooled applicants who have been admitted in the past. These recommendations can be found on our Homeschooled Students page.

We encourage you to contact Julie Brasseaux with any questions.

Transfer Application

Every year, we welcome about 175 transfer students to Tulane, most of whom have cumulative GPAs of 3.0 or higher.

Record Retention

The Office of Undergraduate Admission follows the record retention guidelines set forth by AACRAO (the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers). For applicants who enroll, most application materials are retained until three years after graduation. Documents that do not fall into this category are the application, which is retained for one year after the first enrolled term, and letters of recommendation and reader forms, which are retained until the point of admission. For applicants who do not enroll, all documents are retained for one year after the application term.
