Brown requires that all students, including visiting students or students who engage in any level of in-person instruction, whether in the U.S. or abroad, be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Medical and religious exemptions from vaccination will be granted to students and reasonable accommodations will be provided (as determined by applicable law).
All travelers to the U.S. are required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (defined at least 14 days after a second dose of an accepted two-dose series or one dose of an accepted single-dose vaccine) and the negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than one (1) day before boarding their flight or provide documentation of having recovered from COVID-19.
What COVID-19 testing requirements are required for entry to the United States? What if I have been vaccinated, do I still need to show a negative test result?
Is there the possibility that another suspension of on-campus activities can happen, and if so, what should I expect?
In the event that Spring 2022 on-campus instructional or operational plans change due to public health or other considerations, the University will communicate and provide clear guidance about how international students can complete the semester while considering implications of the current and/or forthcoming Student and Exchange Visitor Program guidelines.
Do I need to quarantine upon arrival to Brown from a U.S. or international location? How long in advance should I plan to arrive in Providence?
