Step 2: Add relevant information, upload required documentation, and save. Submit the declaration.
Upload a syllabus, sample work, and any other information required by the concentration advisor, such as approval for assignment as equivalent to a Brown course by another department’s transfer credit advisor.

Concentration Advisor Instructions
Step 1: On the student’s course plan, a checkbox will appear to the right of any entry that needs additional review. This could be pre-Brown work or a study abroad course, evidence of language competency, an internship or practicum, etc. A red line appears on the left if the course doesn’t appear on the internal record.
Step 2: Click the checkbox on the right. Review the content, including any attachments (transcript, past work, etc.). Click Yes or No. Save.
On the course plan, approved non-Brown items will have a check mark.
Ex. 1: Summer internship (not for credit) Ex. 2: Study abroad course (earned Univ. credit)
Step 3: Before you exit, approve the declaration to finalize the approval of this item for concentration credit.
