Entry Requirements

  • Brown first-year students will have completed 12 years of primary and secondary schooling.
  • Students who have completed 13 years of schooling and who have completed their external national examinations for college-level work with exceptional results may be eligle for some advanced standing or transfer credit at Brown once they become sophomores. International certifications most commonly earned by our students are the International Baccalaureate diploma or A-levels; other national "13th-year" certification programs, however, may be considered on a case-by-case basis. It should be noted that neither course credit nor enrollment credit is granted for AS or O-level exams.
  • English language proficiency must be achieved before you are admitted. Brown does not offer courses in English as a Second Language for its undergraduates and does not accept on a provisional basis students who are deficient in English. We highly recommend that international applicants or students whose first language is not English should take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and arrange for Brown to receive the official results. A TOEFL score of 600 or above on the written exam or 100 or above on the internet-based exam is expected in most cases. If your score on the SAT Critical Reading test is 650 or above, it is not necessary to take the TOEFL
