Every year, Princeton University receives about 31,100 applications. Out of these, only 1,860 are accepted and about 70 or 1,310 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 1,430 - 1,570 for your Combined SAT scores or 31 - 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 the completion of college-preparatory program, Formal demonstration of competencies, Secondary school GPA, and Secondary school rank. Princeton requests a $65 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.
