Continuing Education

Princeton’s Program in Continuing Education admits qualified area residents, K-12 New Jersey teachers, as well as University employees, employees' spouses, same-sex domestic partners and dependents, and graduate students' spouses and same-sex domestic partners to University undergraduate and graduate courses. The program, founded in 1973, does not grant degrees and principally serves students who are:

  • preparing for a career change or entrance into professional or graduate school,
  • pursuing advanced training in their fields,
  • resuming their education after a break, or
  • seeking personal enrichment.

Qualified continuing education students may enroll in most Princeton courses, along with Princeton undergraduate and graduate students. Some limited-enrollment courses such as creative writing and studio courses are not open to continuing education students. Click here for the Continuing Education brochure.

This program is distinct from the Community Auditing Program (CAP), which is a not-for-credit program with limited course selection for community residents. For additional information, please visit the CAP Web page.
