There are several types of Visiting Students coordinated through the School of Professional Studies.
- Post-baccalaureate undergraduate students: Adults holding at least a baccalaureate degree (BA or BS) who wish to take a course either for undergraduate credit or as an undergraduate auditor. This type of visiting student includes Brown employees who wish to take a non-work-related undergraduate course.
- AICU Language Consortium students: Students currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program at a participating Rhode Island institution who wish to take a course in a foreign language not offered at the student’s home institution.
- Visiting undergraduate students: Students currently enrolled in undergraduate programs at institutions other than Brown who wish to enroll on a part-time, non-residential basis during the fall or spring semesters, or either part- or full-time -- with the option to reside on campus -- in the summer.
- Postdoctoral Fellows: Brown-affiliated postdocs in fields other than Biology and Medicine who wish to take an undergraduate course either for credit or as an auditor (see below if you are a postdoctoral fellow in Biology and Medicine).
- Advanced Secondary School students: Qualified rising and graduated high school seniors who wish to take an undergraduate course during the fall or spring semesters. During the Summer, rising and graduated high school students may apply to Brown’s Pre-Baccalaureate Program, which includes a residential option.
The following types of visiting students are NOT coordinated through the School of Professional Studies; to apply for one of these programs, contact the applicable office.
- Brown University employees who wish to take a work-related course should apply to the Employee Education Program (EEP) coordinated through the Benefits Office. Employees who wish to take Brown courses as degree candidates or who wish to take courses at an institution other than Brown should contact Michele Wise firstname.lastname@example.org in the Benefits Office to learn about applicable guidelines of the Employee Education Program.
- Students currently enrolled in undergraduate programs at institutions other than Brown who wish to pursue full-time study at Brown for one or two semesters should apply to be a Pre-Baccalaureate Visiting Student through the Office of College Admission.
- Students who have been out of high school for six years or more and have not yet completed their undergraduate degree, who wish to matriculate at Brown as undergraduate students, should contact the Office of College Admission about applying to the Resumed Undergraduate Education Program.
- Post-baccalaureate students wishing to take a course for graduate credit should apply to be a Special Student through Brown’s Graduate School.
- Postdoctoral Fellows in Biology and Medicine, including Teaching Fellows, MDs, and PhDs, should apply to be a Special Student through Brown’s Graduate School, and contact the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies in the Division of Biology and Medicine with any questions.
