Tips from a Transfer Student

Napat Intarachumnum shares her experience as a transfer student from a small Liberal Arts college to Tulane University.

Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to play golf in college. I started my college journey at a small Liberal Arts college as a student athlete. While I loved the small classes size and the rigorous pre-med program, I missed a sense of community and started to look for a college that offers research opportunities: a place where I can truly call home.

I considered transferring after my sophomore year, and the transferring process was quite similar to my first year application. The requirements are the following: Common Application, high school/college official transcripts, standardized test scores, and recommendation letters. For transfer students, financial aid will also be available at most schools, and the required documents are the CSS profile and FAFSA.

Transferring to Tulane was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I fell in love with the school and what the city of New Orleans has to offer. There are so many opportunities for the student body at Tulane both in and outside of the classroom. I was able to enroll in an independent study course, participate in various co-curricular activities and even try new sports. My transition to Tulane was very smooth - Tulane has a Transfer Mentor Program where transfer students are matched with a mentor who will guide them through their first few months at Tulane.

Tulane is truly my home away from home. If you are considering transferring, I would suggest doing research on your prospective schools as much possible, attending each school's transfer events, and reaching out to their current students. And if you ever have any questions about the transfer process or life as a transfer student, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at
