For Admitted Students: Special Student Program
We’re delighted you are participating in the Special Student Program!
Please complete these steps to finalize your course registration.
1. Attend a Special Student Advising Session
Students who have been admitted as Special Students for the Fall or Spring semesters are required to attend a brief advising session with the School of Professional Studies prior to the start of classes. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the proposed program of study and to finalize registration paperwork. Students also should consult with the appropriate faculty
Advising sessions for the Spring 2014 term will be held on a drop-in basis on Monday, January 20, 2014 from 8:30am - 5:00pm at Brown University School of Professional Studies, 200 Dyer Street, Providence, RI 02906. If you cannot attend a session during this time, please contact Laura Duphily at laura_duphily @brown.edu to arrange an appointment.
EEP students will receive registration paperwork and instructions by campus mail at their campus mailing address and are not required to attend an advising session.

3. Activate Your Brown Credentials
Once you have completed your course registration and have obtained a Brown ID number, you should activate your Brown credentials (i.e. username and password) so that you can access Brown e-services, including email, digital reserves at the library, a course website, etc. To do this:
- Visit http://activate.brown.edu.
- Follow the instructions to activate your credentials. Note: you will need to enter the 9-digit ID number on your ID card.
- If you have trouble, email the Brown Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that EEP students do not need to complete this step as your employee credentials will remain active; any student access you need will be automatically attached to your account as part of registration processing.
4. Review These Policies of Note
- Study at Brown University is governed by the academic and social policies stipulated in the University’s Academic Code and Non-Academic Conduct policy.
- Special Students do not have access to meal contracts, Health Services, or other services provided specifically for undergraduate students (tutoring, academic resource office, the Writing Center, etc.).
