Students come to Brown with a wide variety of educational experiences and preparation. As you plan your first courses, you should be mindful of any prior coursework and consider departmental recommendations for where to start in your education at Brown. Make sure to talk over your choices with your academic advisors and to speak with the relevant departments, as well as academic deans.
You will receive emails to your Brown address over the summer with detailed information about course placement, including information about departments not mentioned on these pages.
Please note: To be placed out of any courses, you must have all your Advanced Placement, international diploma or international certificate scores results and college transcripts sent to the Office of College Admission prior to your arrival.
