Transfer, Veteran, Non-Traditional Student Programs

About the Transfer, Veteran, and Non-Traditional Student Programs

In 2018, Princeton University proudly relaunched its transfer program as an access and inclusion initiative. Each year we admit a cohort of academically promising students who have excelled at other institutions of higher learning. We seek out transfer students who can bring a variety of perspectives and experiences to campus, and especially encourage applications from first-generation, low-income students, community college students, and U.S. military veterans.

Our cohorts of transfer students come to New Jersey from all across America and overseas. We’re proud to include military-affiliated students from five branches of the US military among our ranks, some of whom participated in Service to School and the Warrior-Scholar Project. Our students hail from both community colleges and four-year institutions, and include recipients of the Jack Kent Cooke Transfer Scholarship. They intend to major in everything from Computer Science to African American Studies and Philosophy to Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. It’s a diverse, ambitious, engaged student community that looks forward to welcoming next year’s transfer class.

Given its mission as a diversity and inclusion initiative, the transfer program is proud to be housed within the Emma Bloomberg Center for Access and Opportunity. Transfer students are fully welcome to participate in its suite of programs and opportunities, most obviously the Scholars Institute Fellows Program.
