Brown students may apply to study away from Brown, either abroad or away at another U.S. institution, and to transfer their coursework back to Brown. Programs may be summer, fall, spring, or full-academic-year. Rules regarding transfer credit are complex; students must obtain pre-approval for the institution at which they wish to study as well as for the courses they wish to take.
Students may explore their options of studying abroad by attending the study abroad fair in the fall, going to an information session in the Office of International Programs (OIP), or browsing the OIP website. Financial aid information and requirements:
