Students who wish to transfer credit from a non-Brown summer abroad experience are strongly advised to obtain pre-approval for their plans.
In order to qualify for transfer credit, the summer abroad program must be at least four weeks long and include at least 60 contact hours (the equivalent of one Brown course). If the program in which you are interested meets these minimum criteria, you may submit a "request for credit" form (link below). This form requires authorization of the Faculty Advisor for study abroad for the department from which you seek credit, as well as OIP and the College's Committee on Academic Standing.
Students who currently receive financial aid from Brown may be eligible for additional loans for summer study abroad. Grant/scholarship money is not offered for non-Brown summer study abroad programs. Students should search for external scholarships and discuss the availability of need-based or merit scholarships through the host institution.
