A visiting student is a person who comes to Princeton for up to one year as a non-degree candidate and typically has some particular need that can be met at Princeton -- for instance, consultation with a faculty member, enrollment in a specific course or set of courses, or use of the Library.
Visiting students are charged full tuition and the required student health plan fee. Normally, visiting students are not eligible for University financial aid, including assistantships in instruction.
Students apply on the standard application form (see section for visiting students). The application deadline is February 15. The exact date is listed in the admission schedule.
The Department will review applications from visiting students using the same criteria used to evaluate regular applications.
