Undergraduate Admission

For Counselors

The Office of College Admission recognizes the critical role that counselors play in supporting their students and values our partnership at each point in the admission process.

We strive to support counselors throughout the admission cycle with the information required to navigate the college application process. You may explore the resources below to learn more about our policies and holistic admission practices. For updates throughout the year and to receive our annual counselor newsletter, please join our contact list.

Submitting Documents to Brown

How to Submit

To ensure the timely processing of application materials during the admission cycle, please submit documents via the Common App or other online credential request services. Brown has also partnered with slate.org, through which you may upload materials directly for applicants. In the rare circumstances that the preceding methods of submission are not options, you may submit materials via email to documents@brown.edu. If an item has been sent to Brown electronically, please do not mail duplicate hard copies. Receiving multiple copies of the same item can slow material processing time.

Midyear Required Documents for Early Decision Admitted Students and Regular Decision Applicants

Please note that the following materials are due by February 23 or as soon as available for all Early Decision admitted students, as well as all Regular Decision applicants to Brown:

Both items should be submitted online through the Common Application. The Midyear Transcript should include either first semester or both first and second trimester grades. The Midyear Report Form provides notice of any course changes or other updates. If your school does not provide formal midyear grades, we ask that you submit the most updated progress grades available whenever possible. 

Required Documents for Matriculating Students 

Please note that the following materials are due by June 30 for all students who have chosen to matriculate at Brown:
Both items should be submitted online through the Common Application. The Final Transcript should include final grades and confirm each student's successful completion of their secondary education. The Final School Report Form serves as additional confirmation of the student's successful completion of secondary school and should include the graduation date as well as notice of any course changes or other updates. We appreciate your help in ensuring that materials are submitted in a timely manner as we work to welcome the incoming class!


Brown University is now available through slate.org. This free platform is designed to strengthen communication between undergraduate admission offices, school counselors, and students during the college search and application process. 

School counselors will be able to upload materials directly for applicants in addition to tracking their application status and decisions. We encourage you to create a slate.org account if you do not already have one, and to watch this demo for more information about slate.org features and functionality. You can also learn more about slate.org through additional resources provided by Slate.

College Fairs

If you would like to invite a representative from Brown to your college fair, please email the invitation directly to collegefairs@brown.edu. As all requests must be received through this email account, we ask that you refrain from inviting alumni representatives directly. Please note that due to the volume of requests each year, we are limited in the number of fairs in which we are able to participate.
