How to Apply
The Bridge Year Program accepts applications from members of Princeton's newly admitted freshman class.

Bridge Year application materials are available exclusively online. Students admitted to Princeton's Class of 2021 can log in using the same username and password created to check their Princeton University application status.
- Submit completed Bridge Year application materials by May 21, 2017.
All admitted students may view, edit and save application materials as often as they like; however, only students who have accepted Princeton's offer of admission may submit the application or be considered for the program. The deadline for all materials is May 21, 2017.

A select number of applicants will be invited to interview for the program via Skype. Selection decisions will be emailed to all applicants on June 15, 2017.
In evaluating applications, Princeton looks for openness, maturity, flexibility, courage, resourcefulness, eagerness to be challenged and commitment to service. The University aims to select a wide range of students that reflects the diversity of the freshman class.
