Program Enrollment Policy Information

The comprehensive tuition covers the academic program and related fees. It does not include travel, room and board for the residential sessions at Brown University, books and materials that may be required for courses, or health insurance premium. Health insurance with a U.S. carrier is required for all Brown students while on campus; students without coverage may purchase insurance from the University. Additional information and forms will be provided at a later date.

The majority of students enrolled in this program are self-supported. Graduate students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents may be eligible for loans through the Federal Direct Loan Program (including Stafford and Graduate PLUS loans). The University has an installment payment plan, which allows billed costs to be spread out over time. Please visit the Financial Aid website for information about financing options.

A non-refundable $1,500 US program deposit is due within six weeks of notification of your acceptance to the program by Brown University and will be credited to program fee payment.

Student Conduct

Students are expected to read and abide by the policies in the Brown University Academic and Student Conduct Code.


Students on leave seeking to return to active status in their program must pay a readmission fee of 3.125% of the annual tuition, in addition to the tuition charge appropriate for their status in the program. The fee may be waived for students who leave the program for extraordinary circumstances and choose to re-enroll. 

Refund Policy*

Students who leave or change their enrollment status at the University during or at the end of Term I are not charged for Term II.

Students who withdraw the University (except under conditions noted below) or change their enrollment status during a term are eligible for tuition payment refunds during the first five weeks of the term according to the following schedule: 

Week of Withdrawal            Refund Percentage

First two weeks                                 80%

Third week                                        60%

Fourth week                                      40%

Fifth week                                         20%

If a partial refund is made, no portion of the tuition paid and not refunded is credited toward the total tuition required for the degree. When no refund is made, the four tuition units paid are credited toward the total tuition required for the degree, and the number of terms to which the student is entitled for full-time enrollment is appropriately reduced.

Students who are suspended or dismissed or withdraw when under investigation for misconduct are not eligible for a tuition refund for the term in which the suspension, dismissal or withdrawal occurs.

U.S. Federal loan recipients are also bound by the Federal refund policy for loan funds.  Please contact the Office of Financial Aid for more details.

*Exception: Student accounts financed by the Installment Payment Plan (IPP) are not eligible for a refund until all obligations to the IPP and the University account have been met. Please visit the Bursar's Office website for more information regarding Installment Payment Plans (IPP).
