Student Communications

The first several emails will generally be sent to the account you used when applying to Brown, but subsequent emails (after May 1, June 1 or January 1 depending on start date) will be sent to your Brown account.

The Graduate School provides the majority of our communications through Today@Brown, our social media channels, our newsletter, and through direct messages to your programs.
