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.
All transfer applicants are considered for partial merit scholarships based on the academic merit of their application for admission. Applicants do not need to submit any additional documentation other than the required admission materials to be considered for academic merit scholarships. Partial merit scholarships of up to $20,000 per year can be awarded to transfer applicants based on their academic success and the rigor of their curriculum. Applicants will be notified of any partial merit scholarship in their acceptance letters.
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 they 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 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.
