Welcome to the new Tulane School of Professional Advancement.
Our name has changed from the School of Continuing Studies but our mission has stayed the same.
Complete the online application, upload your official government-issued photo ID, and pay the $25 application fee.
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 email@example.com. To mail transcripts, please use the following address:
6823 St. Charles Avenue
125 Gibson Hall
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.
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.
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.
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.
