Undergraduates and graduate students who are matriculated at other four-year colleges or universities are welcome to apply for admission to the Brown Summer Session. Students must be in good standing at their institutions, complete an application,  and attached a current transcript.

For International Students

While language proficiency exams are not required for admissions, we strongly recommend a TOEFL score above 100 for Summer Session Credit Courses. Admission decisions are made based on the applicant's academic records and his/her standing at the college where degree work is being pursued. Other records or references in addition to the transcript may be requested. Non-US citizens should review the information on our age For International Students page to ensure they obtain the necessary visa, as appropriate.
