The Freeman School selects a limited number of students (domestic and international) to receive partial merit-based fellowships. All applicants are automatically reviewed for a fellowship award at the same time as the admissions decision.

Financial aid awards are included in the admissions notification letter, along with any specific terms which may apply to the fellowship. Learn more about fellowships.

Need-Based Financial Aid

Domestic students

Graduate level students use a combination of student loans, work study and personal funds to help defray the cost of educational expenses. At Tulane University, all loans and merit-based aid are administered through the central Office of Financial Aid. Students can borrow up to the budgeted MBA cost of attendance less any fellowships. For detailed information about student loans and how to apply please visit the Office of Financial Aid.

US Veteran Benefits

The Freeman School of Business appreciates the service of US veterans and is proud to assist US veterans in meeting their education and career goals.

Tulane University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, and the Freeman School has established a generous Yellow Ribbon fund for graduate business students. Eligible students will be given an annual contribution up to $25,000 that will be matched by the VA. See the Student Veterans Services website for details and how to apply.

International students

Loan options are available for international students through private/alternative educational loans which have specific requirements. Information about resources available to international students.
