Admissions

American schools typically use a 4.0 grading system, this may differ considerably from what is used in your school and we strongly advise you to speak to a local counselor to better assess your chances of admission. For international students another key requirement is being able to prove your English language proficiency. All American universities accept the TOEFL exam and most now accept IELTS and PTE also. Brown University asks for a minimum of 600 for paper-based TOEFL exams. Your counselor will be able to help you convert this to an internet-based TOEFL exam or an IELTS or PTE equivalent score. There are two standardized tests which are used to evaluate students’ preparedness for university-level studies, these are the SAT and the ACT. To be competitive, Brown University applicants should aim for an SAT 1 Critical Reading section score range of 660 – 770 and a Math section score range of 670 – 780. With the ACT, students accepted to Brown University generally score within a range of 30 – 34.

Tuition and Fees

Brown University requires a non-refundable fee of $75 to submit your application. An application fee waiver may be available for students who can demonstrate a financial need. An advanced deposit is not required from international students who are offered admission. University fees can vary from time to time. We try hard to ensure that the data we present here is accurate, but you should speak to your counselor to ensure you receive up to date information.
