Financial Aid FAQ (Fall 2020)

Following the University's announcement of its plan for fall 2020, the Financial Aid Office has prepared a resource that answers common questions about the financial aid, billing, and student employment implications of the plan. Please view this resource to learn more.

Financial Aid Mail Processing

The Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid and Student Employment (UFA) is currently unable to send or receive U.S. mail. To update your financial aid application, please upload materials to your secure financial aid portal; secure fax to our office at 609-258-0336; or email to pfaa@princeton.edu (if you are a member of the class of 2024) or faoffice@princeton.edu (if you are a currently enrolled student).

Outside Scholarships

Outside scholarships replace your student contribution. Once this is eliminated, any additional outside scholarships will replace your Princeton grant.

If your Princeton grant is reduced as the result of an outside scholarship, you may recover reduced funds toward the one-time purchase of a personal computer. This policy applies to basic hardware and software products up to $3,500.

Federal and state grants do not replace the student earnings expectation—instead, these need-based awards reduce Princeton grant.

All outside scholarships must be reported to our office—to report them, please contact our office.

Students searching for outside scholarships may wish to visit fastweb.com or the Army ROTC website.
