Tulane Pre-College gives high school students the opportunity to take college-credit courses taught by Tulane faculty. Classes for college credit are selective and geared toward rising 10th- through 12th-grade students interested in a college academic experience. Pre-College students typically earn three hours of general education credits.

Academic Excellence Starts Early

Courses in science, engineering, and other fields are offered each summer and have a workload similar to that of a regular undergraduate course. During the session, students may attend lunch-and-learns with guest speakers or tour many of our facilities, including the Tulane Makerspace.

College-credit courses are offered as part of a residential or commuter program. Students who opt to live on campus will reside in one of our undergraduate residence halls. We offer scheduled activities both on and off campus for residential students while providing the students with ample free time to read and study. All activities are included at no additional cost.
