Geneva 2014 Summer for Development (Undergraduate Study Abroad)

What is the deadline to apply?


The deadline to apply is March 18th .  We encourage you to apply as applications are considered on a rolling basis and some programs fill up rather quickly.

What types of activities will be provided by the program?

In addition to regularly scheduled classes, there are social and educational activities organized by Tulane. In the past years, these have included tours, sites of historical interest, and museum visits. A calendar of all activities will be given to you when you arrive at the program

Will I need to bring any business attire with me?


Please bring make available business casual attire for visits to/by professional organizations, and other such occasions. 

Am I eligible if I am under disciplinary probation?

Students who are on disciplinary probation during the semester or term in which they intend to study abroad are not eligible to participate in a Newcomb-Tulane study abroad program.

What are the core curriculum requirements?

Additionally, prior to studying abroad, all Tulane students must demonstrate completion of the following components of the Newcomb-Tulane core curriculum:

In the event a program provider requires a higher CGPA than the Tulane standard, students must meet the higher standard.
