News & Announcements

Each fall, Brown University admission officers take to the road to meet with prospective students. This year, we are visiting locations near you and we invite you to join us. You will learn in-depth information about Brown’s rigorous and unique academic environment in addition to research opportunities, diversity on campus, student life, the application process, and financial aid. Find an event near you.

We understand there have been weather-related postponements of testing dates. We extend our deepest concern for those communities in the paths of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Students interested in applying Early Decision can have the results of tests taken in September or October sent directly to Brown. Regular Decision applicants should complete all required testing by the December test date and arrange for results to be sent directly to Brown on or before the January 1 Regular Decision deadline. For more information we recommend visiting the ACT website. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

Applicants can satisfy Brown's testing requirements in one of two ways: (1) Either the SAT with essay, or (2) the ACT with writing. We recommend, but do not require, the submission of two SAT Subject Tests of your choice. If you are applying to the Program in Liberal Medical Education, we strongly recommend one subject test in either Biology, Chemistry or Physics. Please read more about our testing requirements here.

The Brown Office of Energy & Environmental Initiatives is excited to announce the launch of the Brown Sustainability Tour! Join us Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12 PM starting on October 10th to learn about sustainability at Brown. For more information or to register, please click here.

Interested in hearing from a current Brown student?  Ask a Student @ Brown is a great way to hear about life at Brown directly from undergraduate students.  Don't want to send an email?  The Bruin Club Blog is another direct line to Brown students and the Brown way of life.
