Congratulations! You've been approved to study abroad on your proposed program. Read this page to discover your next steps.
Login and change your status from "Tulane Approved" to "Committed" in the Tulane study abroad portal. Changing your status to "Committed" in Tulane's system does not indicate a financial commitment to the program, it just lets us know that you intend to study abroad for our records.
Most Tulane-approved study abroad programs have external applications on the program provider website. To access the external application, navigate to "Helpful Links" on your program's brochure in the study abroad portal and look for an application button.
All students who submit an application to study abroad with Tulane must list a backup option within their primary program application in case the host university or study abroad program does not admit them or in case of program cancellation. Students only need to submit ONE Tulane Study Abroad application. In most cases, students will submit ONE Tulane Study Abroad application and ONE external application to their program. Students who are pending acceptance to their first choice program or students whose first choice program is at risk of cancellation due to risk (COVID, health and safety concerns, etc) may consider submitting a BACK UP secondary application. If you have any questions about the next steps in this process, please contact your study abroad advisor as soon as possible.
OPTIONAL: Enroll in INTU: Global Cultural Awareness. This first course in a series of three 1-credit courses is a pre-departure seminar designed to give students the skill set to capitalize from the outset on the experiences, network connections, and academic environment that their particular exchange experience will offer. Prior to departure for study abroad, students will develop a Service-Learning or Internship project to be conducted while abroad that will function as a point of class discussion for the following course taken while abroad.
Through the generosity of Tulane donors, the Office of Study Abroad offers several awards to supplement student budgets for study abroad. All approved applicants who answered "YES" within their application's Need-Based Scholarship questionnaire are automatically considered for scholarships; no additional application is required. Notification will typically be made via email in May/November.
Your approval from Tulane University to study abroad is conditional based on the following ongoing requirements. If you do not continue to meet these requirements by the end of the current semester, your approval to study abroad will be revoked:
