TULANE LAW SCHOOL LLM ELIGIBILITY
Each of the LLM programs require two full-time semesters in residence and satisfactory completion of 24 credits, 3 of which may be completed in a Tulane Summer Abroad Program. Admitted full-time Tulane Law School LLM students may begin the LLM program in the summer by attending a Tulane summer abroad program. LLM students may take up to 3 credits of coursework; tuition is included in the academic year costs. International students must, however, be in New Orleans by the start of the Introduction to US Law course in late July.
Applications are accepted on first come, first serve basis until programs are full. There is no hard application deadline. It is best to apply as soon as you are confident of your summer plans to best ensure a space in the program.
Please be aware that the tuition deposit is non-refundable. Your deposit will be applied to your total tuition.
The following exceptions will result in a full refund of all fees paid.
Please be aware that we will be unable to award course credits until we receive your letter of good standing. Payment of tuition is not sufficient. Your transcript showing completed credit hours and grades will not be available until all documents are received and all tuition and fees are paid.
TUITION: Your tuition will be refunded less the deposit if we receive written notice of your withdrawal two weeks prior (15 days) to the start date of your program.
HOUSING: Your housing will be refunded less the deposit if we receive written notice of your withdrawal one month prior (30 days) to the start of your program.

The descriptions for the types and costs of accommodations are listed under the individual programs. These descriptions outline what we know at the time of publishing, but are subject to change. If you have any specific questions regarding housing, please direct them to the individual program directors or coordinators found at the end of each program listings, as they have the best and latest information.
Some programs do not provide an accommodation option, in which case students are responsible for arranging their own housing. Housing recommendations and resources are provided under those program pages. Housing charges, when billed through the university, will be billed along with tuition and fees through the University's Accounts Receivable Office. This will direct you to Gibson online at http://gibson.tulane.edu which you must access with your Tulane email address and password (you will receive from the University around April).
Program housing payments are refundable until one month prior (30 days) to the start of your program. They are non-refundable beyond this point.
Tulane University is committed to ensuring equal access for students with disabilities.
For in-class and exam related accommodations, Tulane students, including those visiting from outside universities, must apply through the Goldman Center for Student Accessibility. The process can sometimes take several weeks, so begin it as soon as you are able. https://accessibility.tulane.edu/content/student-information. If you already are registered with the Goldman Center for Student Accessibility, you do not need to submit an additional application. Please contact email@example.com to make arrangements for the implementation of your accommodations.
Tulane will make every effort to facilitate accommodations abroad, but unfortunately, certain program sites may present challenges to individuals with disabilities. Each country has its own standards of accessibility for persons with disabilities. Before you travel, visit the U.S. Department of State website and enter a country or area to find information for mobility-impaired travelers in the Special Laws & Circumstances section. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/Internat.... Unlike the United States, many countries do not legally require accommodations for persons with disabilities. The Office of Study Abroad is happy to discuss the specific program sites you are considering. To inquire about the suitability of a specific site for your needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Germany is extremely accommodating to individuals with disabilities. This is also true for Humboldt University. Humboldt has an extensive website to assist individuals with disabilities. The Program Directors stand by to provide this information in English.
Unfortunately, there is no wheelchair accessibility to any of the dormitory rooms or classrooms, nor to most parts of Trinity College and Cambridge.
Paris-Dauphine provides disability support to those who need it and is very accessible. However, as with much of Europe, many older buildings around the city may pose accessibility problems.
The Sheraton facilities are accessible to students with disabilities.
The University of Siena’s buildings, like many places in Europe, may pose accessibility problems for students with wheelchairs because of steps at the entrance.
Visit Tulane’s Insurance and Risk Management website for detailed information: http://www2.tulane.edu/counsel/oirm/studyabroad.cfm.
Students are responsible for all travel arrangements and are strongly advised to purchase travel insurance. We recommend researching ticket prices early via competing travel search engines to find the most competitive prices.
All students participating in Tulane sponsored or approved study abroad programs or Tulane sponsored or approved international educational activities are required to have adequate international student health insurance (in addition to U.S. domestic insurance coverage). If you do not have health insurance that covers you overseas, you may purchase international travel insurance through GeoBlue. You are eligible to purchase GeoBlue International Health Insurance if you:
To sign-up for GeoBlue, please contact Mallory Asp-Armond at email@example.com.
All students are REQUIRED to enroll in Global Rescue. This evacuation service is provided for all Tulane students at no charge.
PASSPORT INFORMATION AND VISAS
Please be aware that any travel outside of the United States or U.S. Territories requires a valid passport. Make sure that your passport is valid for at least six months after your scheduled departure. It may take up to six weeks to receive your passport via routine service, so you must apply in advance if you do not already have a passport. If you are applying for the first time or do not have your expired passport you will need to visit a passport facility in your area. Otherwise, you may apply to renew your passport online.
For more information, visit the Department of State's U.S. Passport website: http://travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html
If you are not a US citizen, please see the entry requirements for the country of your program location.
BE A SMART TRAVELER
It is always good advice to follow the common sense rules of travel: don't carry large sums of cash, secure your valuables, be aware of where you are, and let others know your plans. Prior to international travel, students must consult travel warnings and alerts posted on the U.S. State Department website. The State Department site lists official warnings about travel to particular countries and it includes other information of which employees should be aware before traveling abroad. Through Global Rescue, students can sign up for travel alerts related to safety and health issues.
We also advise registering your trip in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program so the American Embassy or Consulate will be able to keep you informed and provide assistance in the event a crisis occurs while you are there. See the iPhone and iPad free Smart Traveler application. Please visit any of the Department of State’s websites, such as Country Specific Information or Smart Travel for more information.
