Earn College Credit this Summer at Brown
Rising or graduated high school seniors who choose Summer Session Credit Courses earn college credit in these seven-week courses. Study side-by-side with Brown undergraduates in courses carefully selected from the Brown undergraduate curriculum.
Each course is approved by Brown’s College Curriculum Council for academic quality, appropriate workload, and equivalency to first-year Brown courses. Successful completion of any challenging Summer Session Credit Course demonstrates a student is ready for rigorous Ivy-level academic work.
The standard workload for residential students in the Summer Session Credit Course program is two courses - commuter students may take one course. Courses meet mornings and afternoons, and each course meets for 8 hours each week.
In most courses, students are evaluated by an "A", "B", "C", or "NC" grade. In some courses (noted in the individual course descriptions), students are evaluated on a satisfactory/no-credit basis, rather than a letter grade.
Note that we continue to add new credit courses daily.
Life Outside of the Classroom
Outside of class, you’ll have the experience of independent living on an Ivy League campus, making friends, attending events and social activities on campus, and having time for summer fun. Preparing for college continues with an extensive Co-Curricular activity calendar – workshops and presentations designed specifically to help you succeed with your college applications, better prepare you for the transition to college life and college-level academics.

Where You Will Live
Students live in residence halls within walking distance of academic buildings and campus resources. A team of carefully selected and trained Residence Directors (RDs) and Residential Advisors (RAs) live along with the pre-college students in each of residence halls. These skilled and caring live-in professionals and Brown undergraduates help students create a balanced academic and social life. More »
