Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees for academic year enrollment are billed twice a year, once in late June, and again in November. Brown uses an electronic system, called E-Bill, to bill and collect required payments. A link to the current billing statement is sent to the student’s official Brown email address on each bill date. If a parent wishes to receive the E-Bill directly, view statements, and make payments, the student may authorize them as a user through interface.

Specific charges for undergraduate, graduate, and medical students are listed in the Fee Charts on the Bursar's Office website. 

Tuition Refund Insurance

Tuition insurance is strongly encouraged to minimize financial losses a family may experience when a student has to leave (i.e., complete withdrawal from) Brown during the term for reasons of serious illness or accident; please review the Frequently Asked Questions for information about coverage and restrictions. Brown works with an outside vendor to provide an optional tuition insurance plan that supplements Brown's refund policy, even if the student withdraws after Brown's refund policy has expired. This is an optional but highly recommended insurance program.

Visit the Bursar's website for information about the Tuition Leave Refund Policy and the Tuition Refund Plan

Payment for insurance must be submitted before the first day of classes in any given term. 

Refund Policies

Students who need to withdraw from a term of study once it has begun may be eligible for a partial refund of tuition and fees. Refunds are determined according to the time of the semester and the reasons for withdrawal. If a partial refund is made, students do not earn enrollment credit toward graduation for the given term. See Degree Requirements under Academics at left for information about the enrollment requirement. 

Brown's Tuition refund policy is posted on the Bursar's website.  

Housing fee refund information is available through Residential Life.

Meal plan refund information is published on Dining Services' terms and conditions webpage.

Students who are suspended or dismissed or withdraw when under investigation for misconduct are not eligible for a tuition refund for the term in which the suspension, dismissal or withdrawal occurs. Federal financial aid recipients are also bound by the Federal refund policy for financial aid funds; contact the Office of Financial Aid for more details.
