*Program Fee: The program fee covers onsite tuition, related academic programming and program sponsored excursions. It also covers the onsite orientation program, emergency travel assistance, and the services of the onsite program staff. This program is an exchange program, and in order to facilitate cultural exchange and interaction, a portion of the program fee you pay supports exchange visitors to Brown from this site.

You will receive a Student Health Insurance Plan information packet, which will include instructions on how to waive the insurance online if you have other comparable insurance in place.
