Financial Aid for Study Away & Study Abroad

Find details about how study away or study abroad may affect financial aid, and learn how to prepare.

Please see the Office of International Programs Study Abroad COVID-19 Updates for the current status of study abroad programs.

Brown students may apply to study away from Brown, either abroad or away at another U.S. institution, and to transfer their coursework back to Brown. Programs may be summer, fall, spring or full academic year. Rules regarding transfer credit are complex; students must obtain pre-approval for the institution at which they wish to study as well as for the courses they wish to take. 

Study Abroad

Students may explore study abroad options by attending the study abroad fair in the fall, going to an information session in the Office of International Programs (OIP) or browsing the OIP website. Financial aid information and requirements:
