Brown academic calendar 2023-2024

Check out the Brown academic calendar for the 2023-2024 school year for important dates and deadlines. Brown University holidays, exam dates, registration dates, and so on are among these dates.

Brown University’s academic calendar is typically divided into two terms: fall semester and spring semester. Each semester lasts about 15 weeks, with an extra exam period at the end of each term.

The academic calendar’s specific dates vary slightly from year to year, but the fall semester generally begins in late August or early September and ends in December, while the spring semester begins in late January or early February and ends in May.

Brown University, in addition to the two main semesters, offers a variety of summer and winter session courses, which typically have shorter durations and more concentrated coursework.

The following are the key dates and deadlines on the Brown academic calendar for 2023-2024.
