Eligibility Requirements for RUE Applicants

Eligibility Requirements for the Resumed Undergraduate Education (RUE) Program

Applicants must have earned a high school diploma or equivalent and have been out of high school for six or more years by the time of proposed enrollment at Brown. 

Individuals who have earned a previous bachelor’s degree or have substantially more than two years of full-time college experience are not eligible for the program.

Applicants with little or no college experience are considered RUE first-year applicants. Those with one to two years of college credits are considered RUE transfer applicants.

Please note that U.S. military veterans are highly encouraged to apply using Brown's specialized Veterans Application, available in mid-October.
