Tuition Refund Policies

Refund rates and withdrawal policies may vary by program. Please review the policies for the program(s) to which you plan to apply.

A 10% non-refundable deposit is due within two weeks of acceptance to a pre-college summer program. Financial accounts will be settled through the student and parent portals. Partial payments can be made prior to June 1st.

All program changes must be made at least 14 days prior to the program start date. Students may not change courses once the session begins.

Enrichment Program Withdrawals

If a student wishes to cancel their program attendance and registration, they must notify Tulane University Pre-College Programs in writing by email to summer@tulane.edu.

The 10% deposit is non-refundable, but the remaining program fee will be refunded if a student chooses to cancel their attendance prior to June 1, 2023. No refunds will be given after June 1, 2023.

All students registered for a course must be in attendance on or before the second day of class. Otherwise, registration will be canceled.

Withdrawals from Credit Courses

A student may withdraw only with permission and approval from the Program Director. The effective date of withdrawal is the date official written notification is received by Tulane University Pre-College Programs. The tuition refund schedule applies to all students regardless of the date of application or the circumstances of the cancelation.

Cancellation Policy

Tulane University Pre-College Programs reserves the right to change or cancel any program if conditions warrant. Notification will be provided as early as possible should this be necessary. Should a program be canceled due to low enrollment numbers, other program options will be offered, or refunds will be processed. For participants who want to add sessions, we cannot guarantee availability. All participants are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tulane University reserves the right to dismiss any participant, without reimbursement of payment, who is unable to adhere to the Tulane Pre-College Code of Student Conduct or is disruptive in any other way. Understanding that pre-college participants are minors, the University employs specific rules and expectations to promote a safe and productive learning environment. Tulane may, in its sole discretion, require any participant who has violated the University’s policies to leave the program at the participant’s expense. All parents and participants are encouraged to read carefully the Tulane Pre-College Code of Student Conduct agreement included in the enrollment paperwork and in the handbook.

Financial Aid

Tulane University Pre-College programs work to support motivated students with demonstrated financial need. Limited aid is available and is awarded to families in need of assistance. The Financial Aid Committee, which operates independently of Tulane University’s Financial Aid office, awards scholarships as generously and equitably as possible; however, funding for financial aid is limited and the demand is great. In determining need, the committee considers a number of variables, including family finances, family size, and geographic differences in the cost of living.

Financial aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is to your advantage to apply as early as possible. We cannot guarantee that all eligible applicants will receive aid. In most cases, financial aid does not cover all expenses; students must contribute to the cost of attending a program and are encouraged to seek other sources of funding. The aid a student may receive is nontransferable between programs and can only be used for the requested session. Please note that financial aid for international students is only available for credit-bearing courses, and online enrichment financial aid is only available for Louisiana residents.

To be considered for financial assistance, you will need to complete and submit your Pre-College Summer Program Application via your student or parent portal. Contact Tulane Pre-College for more information.
