Resumed Undergraduate Education Applicants

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 three to four courses per semester. Requests for a reduced course load are considered on a case-by-case basis.
