The application deadline for all candidates is December 1st for Fall enrollment. We do not offer spring enrollment. The application and supporting documents should arrive by that date. Applications must be received by this date for full admission consideration.
The application fee is $90 for applications submitted online by December 1st. The application deadline is November 28th for those applying for an application fee waiver.
The Princeton University Graduate School requires that candidates apply online. You should not be submitting any hard copy materials. You will be allowed to upload unofficial transcripts within the electronic application. Official transcripts will be required after admission. Recommenders should also be submitting their letters within the electronic application. Only as a last resort should a recommender mail a hard copy letter of recommendation. Letters may be mailed to: Office of Graduate Admissions, Princeton University, 1 Clio Hall, Princeton, NJ 08544-0270, U.S.A. If a phone number is needed, use (609) 258-3034. Consideration is given only to complete applications received on time. Other graduate degree programs at Princeton University may use later deadlines; the Woodrow Wilson School deadline is December 1st.
