Transfer Students

Welcome to Tulane!

Transferring to a new university can be challenging, but the Academic Advising Center is here to help you through this transition. Once accepted, transfer students work with the Office of Admissions and an academic advisor who specializes in transfer issues to have their previous course credits evaluated.

Since you have already earned credits at other institutions, and are further along in your degree requirements, you really need to hit the ground running. Make certain the Office of Admissions has all of your official transcripts and course descriptions/syllabi to expedite evaluation of your transfer credits. The sooner this is completed, the better able we are to advise you on what to take next for your degree requirements.

Consult the Office of Admissions Transfer Webpage for details on how to transfer credits to Tulane, and what to expect during the transfer process.

Once Tulane has all of your transfer documents, please contact Shelby Siegel at or (504) 865-5798 to review how your credit transferred and for help scheduling your first semester at Tulane.

Transfer students should also consider the following:

Declare your major

Transfer students should declare their major(s) and minor(s) as soon as possible. This will ensure we can plan for the correct courses to graduate on time, and will connect you with faculty in your field of study. Major advisors are valuable contacts not only for degree requirements, but for professional advice and insights into your field of study. Connecting with your major department is also a great way to get to know faculty and students at Tulane, and join in with them for departmental events.

To declare a major or minor, bring a Major/Minor Declaration form to the appropriate department for review and approval by a faculty member. Return the completed form to the Academic Advising Center.

Plan for where you are in your academic career

Transfer students may have a lot in common with each other as they transition to a new environment, but they are also distinguished by what stage in their academic career they are joining the Tulane community. Are you joining us as a freshman, sophomore, or junior? Be sure to review the web pages that best fits where you are in your degree progress for additional tips and suggestions on how to make the most of opportunities at Tulane.
