RUE Application Requirements

Application Requirements for Resumed Undergraduate Education (RUE) Program.

Application and Resume

  1. A completed RUE application form, available only on our website.
  2. A current resume uploaded via the application.

Application Fee

A non-refundable application fee of $75. Fee waivers are automatically granted to all U.S. military service members and veterans. If the application fee proves too much in cases of financial hardship, please email admission@brown.edu and we will review your request for a fee waiver.


Official academic transcripts sent to us directly from your secondary school(s) and college(s), if any.


At least one academic recommendation (two preferred), from a professor, teacher or academic counselor, if possible. Recommendations should be requested using the tool within the application.

Additional recommendations from employers, religious leaders or others who can speak to your experience and talents are welcomed but not required.

Standardized Test Scores

Standardized test scores, including those from the SAT, ACT or TOEFL, are not required, but official test scores are considered if submitted via the testing agency.

Video Introduction

We welcome the submission of a short video introduction via your applicant portal. Sharing a two-minute personal video is a helpful way to show us who you are and why you are interested in attending Brown.
