How to Apply: Pre-Baccalaureate Program
Prospective students must apply for admission. For most programs, there is no application deadline. However, many courses fill quickly, so students are encouraged to apply early.
Completed applications are submitted to the admissions committee for review. When evaluating applicants, Brown looks for academic excellence, intellectual curiosity, and a readiness for participation in an independent academic and living environment.
Applicants will be notified by email when their application is complete, and are notified of the admissions committee's decision by email, usually within two weeks of the application complete date.
Accepted students must confirm their attendance with a $300 non-refundable program deposit. Once this deposit is received, students may enroll through Brown University's online course selection and enrollment web site.
Student applicants are encouraged to review our Financial Policies.

Courses may also be cancelled at any time due to unforeseen circumstances.
