Academic Success at Princeton


Learning new bodies of knowledge and new ways of thinking will inevitably require new strategies and approaches to your academics. Keep in mind that it’s normal and expected that you’ll be intellectually challenged in many aspects of your work at Princeton, and that you can benefit from help outside the classroom. The Office of the Dean of the College offers a wide spectrum of free resources for academic support to complement the guidance you receive from your professors and preceptors.

This website provides information about resources for academic success; you’re welcome to take advantage of as many of them as you would like. For example, you may want to join a study group and attend review sessions, or visit study hall for one course and work with an individual tutor for another. Your residential college dean or director of studies can help you decide which resources might be best for you. It’s a good idea to seek help early, rather than waiting until you feel lost or overwhelmed.
