Important Alerts

Financial Aid Operating Status

Following University guidelines, the Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid and Student Employment is working to implement remote operation procedures. The office is currently unavailable for phone calls, but inquiries may be directed to faoffice@princeton.edu.

For questions about COVID-19-specific procedures, including move out and billing, please review the University's earlier communications to students and to parents.

Outside Scholarships

Outside scholarships replace your Princeton job and then your summer savings expectation. Once these work expectations are 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 $3,000.

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.
