For those entering as a Resumed Undergraduate Education (RUE) student, there is already more flexibility to accommodate your status as someone who is not coming to Brown right out of high school.
If admitted through the regular undergraduate admission process or as transfers, please keep in mind that almost all of the other students admitted through that process are attending Brown directly from high school or transferring to Brown from an institution they began attending right out of high school. Residential and campus experiences are an important and vital part of the complete Brown education; however, if there are components that present issues for you, don't hesitate to ask and to advocate for yourself. Brown students excel not only at tailoring the academic experience to their interests -- they also do this outside the classroom.
For graduate and medical students, systems and protocols are necessarily designed to be more tailored to students with more diverse life experiences.
