Orientation - Fall 2020
In your initial welcome letter from Brown you received information on specific Orientation dates for International, Student of Color, and All-Student Orientations. Our plans have shifted a bit and we do plan to offer all of these Orientations virtually, with both live and recorded sessions and modules. More information about the schedule and offerings will be available in the coming weeks.

FALL 2020 UPDATES
For Students in Master's Programs beginning in Fall 2020:
Should it be the case that it is not possible for you to travel by the beginning of the fall semester due to COVID-19 related circumstances, we will allow you to begin your program remotely, and we would expect you to arrive on campus for the spring 2020 term. Alternatively, prior to the beginning of the fall term, you can request to defer your attendance until spring or fall 2021. Please note that students in programs in the School of Public Health can only defer until fall 2021. With regard to student visas, the begin date on the immigration document I-20/DS-2019 will be deferred to the fall semester. Please note that plans for remote learning are subject to additional guidance we receive from relevant authorities. With regard to student visas, the Office of International Student and Scholar Services (OISSS) at Brown is in the process of issuing immigration documents (I-20/DS-2019) in time for the fall semester, assuming all required documents are received in time.
