Brown University Summer@Brown



The university provides two divisions of summer courses in the sciences, social sciences and humanities for qualified high school students. Seven-week Summer Session Credit Courses allow rising seniors and new high school graduates to earn college credit in two courses that they take alongside undergraduates; these classes are equivalent to first-year Brown courses. Separate one- to three-week, noncredit Pre-College Courses are offered on an ungraded basis to pupils entering grade 10 or higher. Students take one or two classes per session and may attend multiple sessions. Courses include daily assignments, group work, site visits, labs and hands-on projects. Participants in both programs attend events and social activities and have wide use of Brown's athletic, academic and recreational facilities.
