About Princeton University

One of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the United States, Princeton University is consistently at the forefront of research and academic excellence. This is partially due to its unique approach to education, which stresses the importance of independent study.

Princeton’s undergraduate academics grant bachelor’s degrees in the arts and sciences. In their third and fourth years, all undergraduates must pursue independent research in their chosen field of study. Depending on your major and academic goals, this can vary from a lab research to a creative project.

The graduate school at Princeton University offers a variety of master’s degrees and Ph.D.’s, as well as continuing education programs to suit diverse academic needs. The graduate school does not use a credit-based system, and your department and advisor will determine your curriculum.

Tuition at Princeton is among the most expensive in the country. In light of this, the university aims to support its students with significant financial assistance. Princeton’s need-based financial aid program replaces loans with grants, so that its students won’t be overwhelmed with debt after graduation. These programs and more are available to those who qualify. Tuition costs shouldn’t discourage qualified students to apply to Princeton.

As an Ivy League school, Princeton’s admissions are highly competitive. Contact the school directly for more information and guidance on applying.
