COVID-19 Information: Brown University continues to closely monitor and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic locally, nationally and around the world. After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all residential on-campus and off-campus Pre-College Programs for Summer 2020. We will continue to offer online courses. Please visit the Pre-College COVID-19 web page for additional information.

Course Catalog: Summer 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related cancellation of all residential on-campus and off-campus Pre-College Programs for Summer 2020, only online courses are being offered and only in the following programs: Summer@Brown Online, Summer@Brown for English Language Learners, and Pre-Baccalaureate.
Most of Brown’s online courses are asynchronous, allowing students to access the course at any time. Some courses will also have synchronous meeting times. Synchronous sessions will also be recorded so students who are unable to meet at a scheduled time can view the meeting.
