Freshman Year

Depending on intended majors and the number of AP/IB credits brought in from high school, Freshmen Scholars can enroll in a selection of the sample classes listed in the table below. Scholars typically enroll in 18-19 credit hours each semester. In the Fall of Freshman year, students can take a maximum of 19 credit hours. In the Spring, students can take a maximum of 22-23 credit hours.

Please note that this schedule is only a sample. Each Altman Scholar’s schedule will depend on transfer credits earned before attending Tulane (e.g. AP, IB, or college credits.)

When the sample schedule shows more than the maximum credit hours allowed, some classes will need to be shifted to later semesters. 

Enrollment in courses during the Global South Summer Study Abroad Program is mandatory.

Some courses will fulfill more than one requirement. For example, Altman Scholars may take a course on New Orleans Music to simultaneously satisfy the “Aesthetics and Creative Arts” requirement and the “Race and Inclusion” requirement.

Altman Scholars take an Altman-specific section of Management Communications in the second semester of freshmen year to fulfill the General Business Requirement.
