Imports: Dependents of Faculty or Staff from Member Institutions Other than Tulane University

How to apply

Obtain an application from the sponsoring member institution other than Tulane. An application must be processed by the sponsoring member institution firsts, and then processed by Tulane. The sponsoring member school may set their application deadline for their processing much earlier than February 15. Tulane sets the import application receipt deadline at as February 15. Import applications must be submitted to Tulane from participating Tuition Exchange institutions by March 1 prior to the academic year for which the scholarship is sought. Applications are available from your member institution.

Awarding of import Tuition Exchange scholarships is competitive. The university awards Tuition Exchange scholarships to import applicants based on admission criteria. First-time import applicants will be notified by the beginning of March. Tuition Exchange scholarships are awarded to import applicants for undergraduate study only.

Award Stipulations

Students may not receive a Tuition-Exchange Scholarship in combination with any other Tulane merit scholarship or ROTC scholarship. Students may combine an award with a partial athletic scholarship in some cases. Students also may also qualify for need-based aid.

Length of Sponsorship

Dependents are sponsored for one year at a time. Sponsorship may be renewed if the employee maintains eligibility and if the family completes and submits by the specified deadline the required applications for participation. Sponsorship is limited to a maximum of four years or 8 semesters. Students receiving sponsorship after their first year of enrollment will be eligible to receive sponsorship for the customary number of years left in their program.

Yearly Renewal

Awards are made for one year only. Renewal import students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.300, maintain primary full-time undergraduate enrollment (at least 12 hours) each semester in Newcomb-Tulane College, School of Business, School of Science & Engineering, School of Liberal Arts, School of Architecture, or School of Public Health and continue to be sponsored by the exporting institution to renew Tuition Exchange scholarships at Tulane. Tulane sends out renewal certifications to the exporting institution after review of the student's spring semester grades and enrollment hours.
