The application for Fall 2022 is closed. The application for fall 2023 admission will open in September.

    All Non-Degree programs have been suspended due to the pandemic. We are not currently taking any applications for those programs.

    Before applying for degree-seeking admission, please read the Applying to Princeton page.

    Prior to beginning an application, review the helpful tips below:
    • Applicants may log back in and edit any applications which are in progress. Submitted applications cannot be edited but you may view your dashboard.
    • Application materials should only be uploaded online in the appropriate spaces under your current application dashboard. Princeton does not accept paper application materials with the exception of architecture portfolios. Please refer to the upload requirements page for specific instructions on uploading materials. Please be sure to review any additional department requirements that may be required.
    • Do not wait for recommenders to submit their recommendations. See the Recommendation Letters page for more information.

    Unexpected and emergent events such as natural disasters, political unrest or armed conflict, and widespread internet or power outages may make it impossible for applicants from an entire region or country to meet an application deadline. Due to the highly decentralized, department-based nature of graduate admissions, the Graduate School cannot make blanket changes to application deadlines, nor can we guarantee that any accommodations are possible. Such blanket changes would prevent the University from meeting its own deadlines for making admission decisions and informing all applicants of outcomes. However, prospective applicants from affected regions or countries are encouraged to reach out to Graduate Admission. When possible, the Graduate School and departments will work with prospective applicants on a case-by-case basis.

    For any difficulties in applying, please visit our FAQ page for further instructions.

    Applicants who require additional accessibility assistance may contact or call (609) 258-3034.
