Admissions & Aid

Applying to Princeton

Students who will have completed one full-time academic year or more of post-secondary transferable credit by the time of their enrollment should apply through the transfer program. Students with less than a full-time academic year should apply as first-year students. The details of the application process for transfer students can be found at the Office of Undergraduate Admission. The application deadline is March 1. If you have questions about the transfer admission process, please contact us at [email protected].

Financial Aid 

Princeton is committed to meeting 100% of students’ demonstrated need for the full period of their enrollment. You’ll have the opportunity to speak with a financial aid officer shortly after admission. As noted above, Princeton participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program and does not limit the number of students eligible for the program. Princeton's need-based financial aid program can supplement or even replace the use of veterans benefits toward the total cost of attendance. Starting in 2023-24, Princeton enhanced its already excellent financial aid program to eliminate its student contribution and provide more generous support to students and their families.
