Tuition and Mandatory Fees

One-half of the total tuition and fees for the academic year is billed at the beginning of each semester. The first bill will be sent out after you have enrolled; typically in mid-July. Your commitment deposit, which is not refundable, will be credited to your fall semester bill. In addition to tuition, full-time students are assessed mandatory fees as described below. Final figures for the upcoming academic year will be available in early spring of the prior year and will be posted on the Welcome Website.

Academic Support Services Fee

This fee entitles students to use the supplemental services of the university main library. It also covers certain computer services and data and voice hookups, the Education Resources and Counseling Center, and other academic support services.

Reily Recreation Center and Student Activity Fees

The student body at Tulane assesses itself a Student Activity Fee to support its activities. The fee entitles students to participate in or attend supported activities, receive a weekly student newspaper, and receive admission to many intercollegiate athletic events and lectures. By virtue of the Reily Recreation Center fee, full-time students become members of the Reily Center.

Student Health Fee

The Student Health Fee provides students on all Tulane campuses with primary care at the Student Health Center. It also supports health education programs, drug and alcohol counseling, and the Tulane Emergency Medical Service.
