How can my dependent child participate?
In order for a dependent to take advantage of the program, three conditions must be realized:
- The dependent must be accepted at the receiving school to pursue full-time undergraduate study toward a degree;
- The receiving school must give the dependent a waiver;
- The dependent must be approved for the tuition exchange by the Office of the Provost at Tulane. Tulane has no control over the first two conditions. The implementation and interpretation of these rules are the responsibility of the Provost.
