How Aid Works

Our need-based aid program is designed to make Princeton accessible to students across all socioeconomic backgrounds. Using Princeton’s generous financial aid formula, counselors carefully review your aid application to determine your family’s expected contribution and financial need.

Because of our commitment to supporting an economically diverse student body, we will meet 100 percent of your demonstrated financial need. Our no-loan policy ensures that need is met through grants, rather than loans.
