FAQ for Admitted Students
Q: Once I’ve been admitted, when will I receive my I-20?
A: During a normal admission cycle, a student is issued an I-20 when they are admitted into the desired program, assuming they have provided all documentation needed for processing. Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Freeman School is only processing I-20’s for students who have been admitted and paid their commitment deposits. Students should expect to receive a copy of the I-20 via email within 10 days of paying their commitment deposits. Hard copy I-20’s will be mailed via DHL within two weeks.
As international applicants are approved for admission, we will continue to issue I-20 visa eligibility documents for the Fall 2020 semester. Because U.S. Consulates have temporarily suspended F-1 Student Visa interview scheduling in some areas impacted by the COVID-19 epidemic, students with their I-20 visa will be able to schedule the F-1 interview as soon as possible after the U.S. Consulates re-open.
If you are unable to obtain a student visa and arrive in time to begin your studies in Fall 2020, please contact your program admissions counselor for information on enrollment options.
Q: Can I defer my admission to a future term after I have enrolled for Fall 2020? When is the deadline to defer my enrollment?
A: Yes, admitted students can defer to a future term. We encourage admitted students to notify us of your deferral request no later than 30 days prior to the start of your program. If you have paid your commitment deposit, it will be applied to your account upon entry.
Q: Will Freeman offer master’s degree programs entirely online?
A: At this point, Freeman is considering offering online master’s degree programs in the future, but no timeline has been provided.
Q: Will Tulane offer individual classes online this Fall?
A: Tulane is following local and national guidelines to ensure the safety of its students, faculty and staff. At this point, we intend to teach all courses on campus this fall, but we will do what is necessary to comply with social distancing procedures. Any changes will be communicated to students as they occur.
