*The posted fee is for one course of the designated length. Each course carries its own course fee. If you register for multiple courses, you will be charged multiple course fees. Please Note: The course fee is calculated by the length of each individual course, not by the total length of time you will be on campus. For example: If you enroll in a 2-week course and a 1-week course, you will be charged the 2-week course fee and the 1-week course fee (not the 3-week course fee). 

**Residential fees for on-campus programs include meals, housing and access to the fitness/athletic/aquatics centers. For the 5-week hybrid CRE, these services are provided for the three weeks on-campus only. If you enroll in more than one course and the courses overlap, you will not be double-charged for the residential fees for the overlapping weeks. If you plan to be residential, you should not select the commuter option for either course, as the fees will adjust automatically. 

A commuter option is available for Summer@Brown students only. If you select this option you will attend your course in person and have access to on-campus resources and activities, but you will not live on the Brown campus. Commuters will have access to one on-campus meal per day and access to the fitness/athletic/aquatics centers. This fee is not optional for commuter students.  

If you are an international student or a U.S. student without health insurance, you will automatically be enrolled in Brown’s limited coverage accident insurance plan for the duration of your program. An additional fee of $80 for this coverage will be added to your account. This plan has limited coverage in the event of an accident or emergency illness while on campus or during program-sponsored activities and is subject to a deductible.

Not included in program fees:
  • Travel to and from Brown’s campus or a BELL or BEE program site.
  • Pre/post-program accommodations.
  • Course materials and textbooks (if required).
  • Additional spending money (for shopping, off-campus snacks, purchases of a personal nature, etc.).
  • Costs associated with potential public health guidelines, which may include, but are not limited to, travel interruption and quarantine. We recommend families consider purchasing travel/trip insurance.
