ACT Requirements

Admission data indicates that Brown regularly accepts students with ACTs of 31 and above. We estimate the school accepting minimum ACT composite scores around 30 in some instances. Prospective students submitting an ACT composite of 32 or higher should be in the upper half of applicants - and students with a 34 and above have very competitive chances. 44 percent of applicants submit ACT scores to Brown University.

Reporting indicates the school consistently takes SAT composite scores down to 1440 on a 1600 scale, below which admission should be considered a reach. We estimate some students could be accepted with SAT's as low as 1370. The estimated average SAT composite for admitted freshman is 1510 out of 1600. A competitive SAT score is critical as 71 percent of applicants submit SAT scores to the school. Note: SAT scores presented on this page have been adjusted upwards per the College Board's concordance tables for test takers after March 2016.
