How to Apply: Undergraduate

Apply for Admission

Complete the online application, upload your official government-issued photo ID, and pay the $25 application fee. Undergraduate admissions applications for spring 2018 are now open. The deadline to submit an undergraduate application for spring 2018 is January 3, 2018.

Submit Official Transcripts

Degree and certificate seeking students must submit official transcripts from all prior institutions attended. Students who have never attended college must submit a copy of their high school diploma or GED. Official transcripts must be on file before a student can register for classes, so this step should be completed as soon as possible. Electronic transcripts are preferred; send to soparecords@tulane.edu. To mail transcripts, please use the following address:

6823 St. Charles Avenue
125 Gibson Hall
Tulane University
New Orleans, LA 70118

If you are not seeking a degree or certificate (non-matriculating), you are not required to submit official transcripts.  Please note that non-matriculating students are ineligible for federal financial aid.  Should you elect to pursue a degree or certificate after being admitted as a non-matriculating student, you will be required to submit official transcripts.

Apply for Financial Aid

Federal financial aid is available for students pursuing a degree or certificate. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. Visit the Office of Financial Aid’s website for more detailed information.

Submit Immunization Compliance

The immunization compliance form is provided to each student as part of the online application. The form must be completed and filed electronically with the Student Health Center. For questions about the form and immunization requirements, contact the Student Health Center.

Activate Email

Once admitted, first-time applicants will receive a Tulane email user ID and password, sent to the personal email address listed on the application. Returning students who are being readmitted will have their previous Tulane user ID and password reactivated. For email assistance, contact the Help Desk at (504) 862-8888. An active Tulane email address and password are required to access Gibson Online, Tulane’s student portal used to register for classes.
