Getting Into Tulane

Admission to Tulane is extremely competitive, and evaluators look for high levels of academic and extracurricular achievement; however at Tulane we’re building more than a class, we’re building a community.  We review each applicant with an eye towards shaping Tulane and making it stronger and more vibrant each year, so it’s important that we look at each applicant as a whole.  An admission decision will never be rendered based on a single piece of information but, rather, on the overall combination of attributes and aspects that make each applicant unique.

The various backgrounds and experiences of Tulane's student body enhance the overall educational experience for all students. 85% of students travel from over 300 miles away to attend Tulane, and the average student travels over 900 miles, making our student body one of the most geographically varied in the country. Below you’ll find statistics on admission rates and the academic makeup of our most recent freshman class.
