Submitting an Application & Deadlines

Deadlines for completion of the Brown study abroad application should be used as a guide for planning.

Regardless of program type, all students must submit an online application through the Brown Study Abroad application portal.

Please note that you are only permitted to have one active application per application cycle.

Below you'll find additional application guidance based on program type:

  • Applications for Brown and Consortium for Advanced Studies Abroad (CASA) programs are processed on a rolling admissions basis. Early applications are highly encouraged. 
  • If you are applying to an Approved program or Petition program you must complete the Brown Study Abroad application through our office and the application for the program provider, whose deadline may differ from our application deadlines below. Please refer to the program provider website for information about their application deadlines.
  • It is best to apply early to an Approved or Petition program because many program providers accept applications on a rolling admissions basis.
  • If you are considering an Approved or Petition Program, we recommend that you apply as soon as possible, even if you have not yet received study abroad approval from Brown.
