Multicultural and Access Programs

Educational accomplishments start as early as middle school and here at Tulane we believe all students should have the support to be successful in the college process. The Office of Undergraduate Admission offers a variety of access and inclusion programming that supports diverse, multicultural, and underrepresented students and their families at each step of the college process.

Application Workshop

The college application process can be intimidating. Tulane’s Office of Undergraduate Admission holds an application workshop in the fall to help high school juniors, seniors, and their parent or guardian navigate the process. The day’s events will include parent and student programming that address the different components of the application, financial aid, and an opportunity to have questions answered by admission counselors.

PreviewTU Multicultural Fly-in

The fall visit program is a 2-day, in person event for prospective, BIPOC and/or First-Generation, high school seniors. The event will take place on October 15th and October 16th, 2022. Combined with our fall Campus Preview Day, students will have the opportunity to explore academic offerings, immerse themselves into campus life, and participate in a college application workshop. This program is hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Admission in partnership with the Carolyn Barber-Pierre Center for Intercultural Life and the Center for Academic Equity. Students traveling to campus are eligible for travel reimbursement from the Office of Undergraduate Admission.

Registration for the 2022 program closes on October 1st, 2022
