Special Students

Admission as a special student, non-degree status, ordinarily allows the student to register for a total of no more than nine semester hours of graduate credit.

The program will not consider any student for admission until all the following documents, plus the $40 online application fee, have been received:

  • Application form (must be submitted online)
  • An official copy of all post-secondary academic transcripts

After nine hours of graduate course work at Tulane have been completed, the student on special non-degree status may not register for additional graduate credit. A special student who wishes to be considered for admission to a degree program may reapply to the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences. (See requirements described under Admission to Degree Programs.) Upon the recommendation of the department chairperson and approval of the Assistant Dean, graduate-level course work done as a special student may be transferred for credit to a degree program.

The deadline fro Special Student Registration is two weeks before the first day of the semester. All applications, transcripts and payments must be turned in before that time or the student will not be allowed to register for that term.
