Every year, Princeton University receives about 32,800 applications. Out of these, only 1,970 are accepted and about 70% or 1,380 decide to attend the school come September. Princeton is known for its highly selective undergraduate program so only about 6% are accepted each year.

When preparing to apply, aim for a 1,460 - 1,570 for your Combined SAT scores or 33 - 35 for the ACT. Your application will be required to have ACT/SAT scores, Recommendations, and a Secondary school record, but it is also recommended you include completions of a college-preparatory program, Formal demonstration of competencies, Secondary school GPA, and Secondary school rank. Princeton requests a $70 fee for undergraduate applicants and $90 for Graduates.

It’s important to keep these dates in mind when applying, whether for Early Action or Regular Decision. Early Action applications are due by November 1 and you should expect to hear back in Mid-December. For regular applicants, have your paperwork in by 11:59 pm local time on January 1. You will be notified before March 31. Either applicant must let the school know intent by May 1.
