Financial Aid FAQ (Spring 2021)

Following the University's announcement of its plan for spring 2021, 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 an applicant to the class of 2025) or faoffice@princeton.edu (if you are a currently enrolled student).

Estimate Your Spring 2021 Bill

We expect spring 2021 financial aid packages to be available by the first week of January.

In line with the recent announcement about the spring semester, the financial aid office will package your financial aid according to your housing circumstances for the semester. Financial aid will be packaged with the on campus, off campus, or at home budgets in line with your spring 2021 living situation.  For the at home and off campus budgets, this includes the reduced tuition rate and allowances for estimated living expenses. For the on campus budget, this includes the reduced tuition rate and the charges for room and the required meal plan.

At Home and Off Campus

To calculate your estimated spring 2021 bill, begin with the estimated charges, then subtract the spring 2021 semester grant aid indicated in your aid award:

Tuition $24,251
plus Student Health Plan (if enrolled) $1,290
minus Grant Aid -
Amount due to Princeton (or refundable credit, if negative) =

Your expected family contribution should cover your amount due to Princeton, plus your at home or off campus living expenses. If you have a credit available, you may request a refund in TigerHub.

Note that your bill will also be charged for the Student Health Plan if you have not waived out of the Plan. If you certified in the MyUHS portal that you do not have comparable health insurance coverage, we have already included additional aid to cover the charge.
