ONEAPP - Application open for 2021-22 academic-year experiential opportunities

until March 15th (midnight)

  • 1 March 2021

Dear Students:


The ONEAPP is now open through March 15, 2021 for experiential learning programs requiring the submission of an application prior to enrollment. ONEAPP provides students the ability to rank their preferences among various academic-year experiential opportunities in one application. These opportunities include clinics (remaining slots), externships, and IPLabs, all of which count toward Tulane’s 6-credit experiential requirement and the New York bar experiential requirement.


I will have office hours via Zoom every Monday from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will be happy to discuss experiential course selection, ranking of options, the ONEAPP form, and other questions you may have.


We are planning an information fair on March 8, 2021 at 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. on zoom. The experiential page of the Intranet has all zoom links, an FAQ, and other relevant information. No applications will be processed before the deadline, so feel free to study your options before submitting.


If you previously applied to a clinic for an early decision and have accepted a slot, you should not apply for a clinic or externship through ONEAPP. You may, however, apply for a spot in the IPLab.
