Undergraduate Admission


QuestBridge connects the nation's brightest underserved youth with leading institutions of higher education. Brown is delighted to be part of this very successful and worthy program.

The following materials are required by November 1 in addition to your QuestBridge application:

  • Common Application and Brown University-specific questions (learn more on the "How to Apply" page).
  • Test scores from either the SAT (the essay section of the SAT is optional) OR the ACT (the writing section of the ACT is optional). We recommend, but do not require, the submission of two SAT Subject Tests of your choice. If you attend secondary school in the United States, Brown will review your application with either self-reported test scores on the Common Application or via your Brown Applicant Portal, or official test results sent directly to Brown.  If you attend secondary school outside the United States, we ask you to both self-report your test results on your application and have official test results sent directly to Brown. Admitted students who choose to enroll at Brown will be required to submit official test results by June 1.
  • CSS/Financial Aid Profile (submitted electronically)

You may receive a request from the Brown University Office of Financial Aid for additional information. Rest assured that if you do not receive a request, the Office of Financial Aid has enough information to provide an estimated financial aid award at the time of admission. A request for additional information should not be interpreted as an indication of a pending College Match.

The QuestBridge Match at Brown is binding

The QuestBridge Match at Brown is binding. If you are admitted to Brown under the Match Program, you must withdraw all applications to other colleges or universities.


We ask all first-year applicants to complete the Common Application and Brown Member section online.
