Undergraduate and Graduate Students - Fall 2020

The University is planning for a range of different scenarios for the 2020-21 academic year. Brown's senior leaders expect to make and communicate a decision about the planned approach for the Fall 2020 semester no later than July 15th. Once a decision has been made, further information will be provided regarding the timing for student account billing and installment payment plans. 

April 2, 2020:

A prorated credit for room and meals for students who moved off campus due to COVID-19 in Spring 2020 will be applied to student accounts no later than Monday, April 6.

Each prorated credit is based on the following:

●      a student’s individual room and meal charges;
●      50% remaining in the spring semester; and
●      for aided students, a prorated calculation based on individual parent contribution to the standard annual cost of attendance ($77,590).

The policy for credits has been established under Brown’s shifted operations for housing and dining, as outlined on the University’s COVID-19 website.

For students (or authorized users) enrolled in the spring 2020 Installment Payment Plan (IPP), a reduction will be made to the final payment that will be drafted from the designated bank account on April 10, 2020.

In addition, a 50% credit for the spring 2020 recreation fee will be applied to each student's account by Friday, April 24, 2020.

For students with a balance due on your student account prior to this credit, the credit will be applied toward that balance due. 

If this room and board adjustment creates a credit balance on your student account, the student account credit balance will be applied to the next semester’s charges.
