With appropriate advising and permissions, this option enables students to enroll as visiting, non-degree students in their choice of a wide range of regionally accredited U.S. institutions (U.S. Study Away) and equivalent non-Brown institutions in their home country (Home Country Study Away for F-1 students), based on their established legal residency (not citizenship) in their ASK student record. Students also have the flexibility of paying tuition directly to their host institution, instead of Brown tuition, because they are on a status of Study Away.
Study away advising and degree completion deans are available for consultation and advising to help ensure students’ plans support their degree completion plans and academic and personal objectives. Although full-time Study Away, like Brown’s Study Abroad programs, requires careful planning ahead, Brown’s Study Away option in some instances may allow for direct enrollment through a self-directed application process, with less lead time, as it carries application deadlines (posted on the Academic Calendar) of May 1 for Fall and December 1 for Spring.
