Healthy Summer at Brown Pre-College

COVID-19 operations for in-person pre-college programs.

Plans for summer 2022 Brown Pre-College in-person programs focus on protecting the health of the community while providing students with a unique opportunity to experience living and learning on the Brown University campus and at other sites domestically and internationally. Brown Pre-College is committed to offering summer programs that are safe and provide students with challenging, exciting, and impactful experiences that will help them prepare for the next steps in their academic journey.
This page is focused on providing general information about in-person policies and protocols for students and their families to support health and safety related to COVID-19. Additional information will be included on this page and shared with students studying in-person in their individual student portals in the spring.

Guiding Principles

We prioritize the health and safety of the Brown community, including seasonal employees and pre-college students.

We base decisions on guidance from the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other public health experts, as well as Brown University health and safety protocols.

We will adjust decisions based on public health conditions and guidance at the time programs are offered.

As of October 25, 2021

Health & Safety Protocols

COVID-19 Vaccinations

Brown University implemented a requirement that all community members who will be living and/or learning on campus must be vaccinated by July 1, 2021. This requirement includes all pre-college students, staff, and instructors. All members of the pre-college community will be required to provide proof of full vaccination status prior to arrival on campus or at a program location away from the Brown campus. More information about this process, including protocols related to requesting medical or religious exemptions to this policy, will be provided to accepted students in their student portal.
