How to Apply as a Transfer Student

Your first step in the transfer process is submission of official transcripts from all colleges and universities that you previously attended. Request that your previous institutions forward electronic transcripts to

If electronic transcripts are not available, official transcripts in unopened envelopes from the institution may be mailed to:
SoPA Admissions
800 E. Commerce Rd.
Suite 100
Harahan, LA 70123

Once we receive your transcripts, an admissions advisor will work with you to identify your transferable courses. In order to transfer course credit, you must have earned at least a C in the course and Tulane SoPA must offer a course comparable to the one you want to transfer. Tulane SoPA accepts a maximum of 60 hours of transfer credits for bachelor’s degrees. Grades from transferred courses will not factor into your into SoPA grade point average.

Current SoPA students wishing to take courses at another institution and transfer credits back to SoPA must first receive approval from the dean's office and their appropriate department.
