Approved Students

Congratulations! You've been approved to study abroad on your proposed program. 

Read this page to discover your next steps. 

Secondary Application

Please be sure to complete all secondary program application materials or interviews specific to your study abroad university/provider in accordance with the program’s deadlines. Review the host program's website to learn about the application process. You may need to secure approval signatures from an advisor in the Office of Study Abroad. Simply reach out to them to request these approvals. 

Many programs fill quickly, so it is important to complete and submit your secondary application to the study abroad program provider or host university as soon as you can.  

Back-Up Study Abroad Program

You identified a back-up study abroad program on your Tulane application. Please stay aware of the deadlines and requirements of that program. In the event you are not accepted to study abroad with your first-choice program, the Office of Study Abroad will encourage you to submit an application to your back-up option. If you have any questions about the next steps in this process, please contact your study abroad advisor as soon as possible.

Pre-Departure Orientation Conference

The Office of Study Abroad hosts an Pre-Departure Conference each semester in order to ensure that students know how to access the resources they need before, during and after their study abroad experience. Participation in this conference is mandatory. 

Global Cultural Awareness

Consider enrolling 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 is able to offer several awards to supplement student budgets for study abroad. All approved applicants are automatically considered for scholarships; no additional application is required. Notification will be made via email in early November.

Ongoing Conditions of Approval

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:
