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, but instead complete the RUE online application which will be available on or about October 1 each year.
