Mid-Year Transfer Students & Study Abroad

Mid-year sophomore transfer students may study abroad in the fall prior to their formal matriculation to Brown, provided they enroll in certain Brown-sponsored study abroad programs as special visiting students. Information on approved institutions is included in the student's offer of admission.

Students pay Brown tuition for the fall term study abroad, but the term of study does not constitute a semester-in-residence at Brown. The student will matriculate to Brown at the start of the spring term. The total number of credits a student may transfer to Brown, including study abroad credits, may not exceed 15. 

Mid-year transfer students participating on Brown-sponsored study abroad programs are not eligible for financial aid from Brown. Students are required to adhere to all Brown program policies and fee requirements governing study abroad.
