The Resumed Undergraduate Education (RUE) Program is a small, highly competitive program ideal for students who interrupted or delayed their formal education due to family commitments, financial concerns, health issues, military service, employment opportunities, or simply a compelling need to explore other paths.
- RUE students take the same rigorous courses, earn the same bachelor’s degree (A.B. or Sc.B.), and have access to the full range of opportunities as other Brown students.
- RUE students take advantage of the flexibility of Brown’s open curriculum and may pursue any academic concentration.
- RUE students typically pursue 3-4 courses per semester. Requests for reduced course load are considered on a case-by-case basis.
RUE applicants should not complete the regular Common Application. The RUE Application is now available. The application deadline for RUE applicants is March 1, 2018, for entrance in September of the same year (preferred) or January of the following year.
