Program Enrollment Information

Before the program starts, students have access to the online program orientation to become familiar with online learning, to get acquainted with their peers, and to prepare for the program with recommended readings.

The comprehensive tuition covers the academic program and related fees. It does not include travel or room and board for the residential sessions at Brown University. Books and materials that may be required for courses, or health insurance premiums are also not included. Health insurance with a U.S. carrier is required for all Brown students while on campus; students without coverage may purchase insurance from the University. Additional information and forms will be provided at a later date.

The majority of students enrolled in this program are self-supported. Graduate students who are US citizens or permanent residents may be eligible for loans through the Federal Direct Loan Program (including Stafford and Graduate PLUS loans). The University offers an Installment Payment Plan, which allows billed costs to be spread out over time.

A non-refundable $1,500 program deposit is due within 15 days of notification of acceptance and will be credited to program fee payment.

The scholarship committee will consider scholarship applications from candidates who are admitted to the program, complete a scholarship form, and provide documentation regarding their financial circumstances.

Third Party Billing Authorization

For the Executive Master’s programs, Brown accepts employer vouchers that are not contingent upon receipt of grades. Students whose employers or sponsors reimburse them for tuition and fees after receipt of grades must pay in full upon receipt of the Student Account Statement to avoid interest, late fees, and/or cancellation of registration. Under all circumstances, the charges for tuition and fees remain the responsibility of the student. If you are using this option, you will have to submit the Third Party Billing Authorization Form. For more information on third party billing, please contact the Bursar’s Office at or 401-863-2484.
