The Division for Pre-College and Undergraduate Programs provides academic opportunities for undergraduates and pre-college students. Brown Universityâ™s Pre-College Programs are a leader in the field of higher education institutions that provide rigorous academic opportunities to students, and experiential learning through on-site engagement and living and learning among peers from diverse backgrounds. Each summer, these Pre-College programs offer students over ten different programs from which to select over 300 non-credit courses that range in length from 1 to 6 weeks, as well as credit-bearing seven week courses learning alongside Brown undergraduates. The approximately 6000 pre-college students each summer hail from all 50 states in the U.S. and over 70 countries. The Universityâ™s Summer and Winter Sessions offers undergraduate students seven-week and four-week intensive courses, respectively, that provide opportunity to extend their undergraduate study into the summer term, allowing them to focus on a single subject area, take courses that are typically full during the rest of the academic year, catch up on progress to a degree, improve academic standing, or explore new subjects of interest.
