All Other Supplementary Materials

We prefer that you upload all other supplementary materials to your file after you receive access to your Brown Applicant Portal.

If you have a YouTube video, or maintain an online presence that showcases your background, talents, or creativity, please include that link in the Brown University Questions (Activities) section of the Common Application.

Supplementary letters of recommendation should be sent directly by your recommender to Brown University, Office of College Admission, Box 1876, Providence, RI 02912, or they may be emailed to admission@brown.edu, or faxed to 401-863-9300. Be sure to ask your recommender to include your full name and high school in their letter so that we can match the letter to your application.
