Tuition & Aid

Tulane offers both merit- and need-based aid programs. All admitted students are considered for partial merit scholarships, and are also welcome to separately apply for additional merit scholarships. Many of our scholarships are awarded on the basis of both need and merit. Several need-based aid awards and programs are also available through our Office of Financial Aid.

Merit-Based Scholarships

All freshmen applicants are considered for partial merit scholarships that range from $1,000 up to full tuition. Our most prestigious merit scholarships have additional requirements: the Deans' Honor Scholarship, the Paul Tulane Award, the Stamps Scholarship, the Louisiana Excellence Award (Louisiana high school students only), and the Community Service Fellowship, and Artistic Scholarships.

Need-Based Financial Aid

Numerous need-based awards, including a no-loan program for middle income families, are available through our Office of Financial Aid. Eligible students completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be reviewed and considered for all federal student aid programs. Tulane requires that both the FAFSA and the CSS Profile, along with all necessary validation documents are submitted in order to be considered for all forms of need-based aid available at Tulane.
