Financial Aid for Transfers

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. Be sure to submit any necessary forms to be considered for all forms of transfer student aid.

Merit Scholarships

All transfer applicants are considered for merit aid based on their application for admission. Applicants with a 3.4 or higher college GPA in a rigorous curriculum including English, Math, and foreign language are most competitive for the Scholastic Advancement Award and Collegiate Achievement Award. The Phi Theta Kappa Advancement Award will be offered to all verified members of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Scholastic Advancement Award

  • For applicants from 2-year colleges
  • No additional scholarship forms required
  • $16,000 per year ($8,000 per semester)

Collegiate Achievement Award

  • For applicants from 4-year universities
  • No additional scholarship forms required
  • $16,000 per year ($8,000 per semester)

Phi Theta Kappa Advancement Award

  • $5,000 per year ($2,500 per semester)
  • May not be combined with the Scholastic Advancement Award or Collegiate Achievement Award

Need-Based Aid

In order to be considered for need-based aid, applicants must submit the FAFSA and CSS Profile. The majority of need-based financial aid awarded by Tulane is grant money which, like a scholarship, is not repaid. Need-based financial aid may also be in the form of loans and federal work-study. Only after an applicant has been offered admission will he or she be reviewed for need-based financial aid. After aid has been awarded by the Office of Financial Aid, the total award, including merit- and need-based aid, may be viewed on your Gibson Online portal. For more information about the financial aid process and to contact your financial aid counselor, visit the Office of Financial Aid website.

International Student Aid

International transfer students may be eligible for up to $20,000 in need-based financial aid if they have not already been awarded that amount or more in merit scholarships. Students must reapply for need-based aid every year. To apply, you must submit a CSS Profile and all necessary supporting documents. For more information, visit the Office of Financial Aid's international student page.
