Louisiana Center for College Access

Tulane University Louisiana Promise

The Louisiana Center for College Access (LCCA) provides free college readiness and preparedness services to students and families from Louisiana. With programs for students beginning their freshman year in high school, the Center hopes to assist aspiring first-generation college students. The Center is also proud to be partnering with Advantage Testing to provide free ACT/SAT preparation sessions each week.

Register for LCCA Sessions

In addition to programs for students, the Center also offers complimentary programming to best prepare families for the college admission process. These presentations, ranging from college application overviews to financial aid walkthroughs, will be recorded and made available on this page after each session.

On our calendar, students have the opportunity to see what programs are designed for their grade level, but these are only suggestions. Students and families are welcome to register for whichever sessions they deem most pertinent to their individual needs.

The Center will be operating on a virtual-only basis while we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Students and their families may contact us with any questions/comments at collegeaccess@tulane.edu.
