Financial Requirements for Graduate Students
International graduate students are required to document the ability to cover enrollment fees, and estimated living expenses as determined by the Graduate School. If you are married and bring your spouse, you will need to document an additional amount to cover your spouse's living expenses as well as your own. You will require additional funds for the cost of each child who accompanies you to Princeton. Since many VSRC applicants are here on a short-term basis, what follows is the MONTHLY breakdown of expenses which need to be documented for the Davis International Center to issue a Certificate of Visa Eligibility (I-20 for F-1 students or DS-2019 for J-1 students). The enrollment fee includes the required Student Health Plan.
Although you are required to document enough funds for estimated living expenses housing is NOT guaranteed. For alternative housing options please refer to our Questions website.
Enrollment fees and estimated cost are noted below for the academic year beginning in September. The fee for the next fiscal year will be announced in January.
