Undergraduates are required to pay a $75 fee (and graduates $75), though it is possible to submit a form for a fee waiver. Some concentrations will require extra essays, files, or information.
If a student is sure that Brown University is their choice, they can apply for Early Decision, with applications due on November 1st and decisions made in mid-December. However, if accepted, Early Decision applicants will be required to withdraw any applications to other schools. For Regular Decision students, the deadline is January 1st with decisions made by the end of March. Students must make their commitment by May 1st.
It’s recommended that students aim for a SAT Combined range of 1,420 - 1,550 (or ACT Composite range of 32 - 35). A team will review every application, looking over grades but also what contributions the student will make to Brown’s academic, social, and extracurricular aspects. Accomplishments, personality, perspective, diversity, and identity are all taken into account.
