How to Apply »

The Visiting Student Program at the School of Professional Studies supports students during the Fall and Spring semesters who wish to pursue part-time undergraduate-level academic work outside of a university degree program.

Visiting Students may apply to take up to two courses at Brown in the fall, spring, or summer terms. Fall and Spring semesters are each 12- to 13-week terms with an additional two weeks for reading period and final examinations. Summer Session is a six-week term with an additional week for reading period and final examinations. Please refer to the Brown University Academic Calendar for official term dates.

Please note that enrollment as a Visiting Student is approved on a semester-by-semester basis and does not imply admission to candidacy for a degree.
