Applying to Princeton's Graduate School
Applicants can apply September through December for admission commencing in the fall term of the following academic year. There is no spring admission, and graduate study at Princeton is offered on a full-time basis. Applicants can apply only to one academic department or program per year, and the application fee is nonrefundable. The Graduate School will not offer admission to an applicant seeking a second PhD in the same or similar field of study. The cost of tuition and the required health plan fee for 2014 - 2015 is $43,720.
All PhD applicants are automatically considered for any funding that is available upon admission. Master's applicants are required to submit the Statement of Financial Resources (which is part of the electronic application) to determine if any funding is available.
Our application process is fully electronic. To apply to Princeton University Graduate School you must use our electronic application.
