Reporting Your Assets and Expenses
Princeton performs a holistic and individual review of each application. In addition to reporting your income, you will report your assets and expenses to provide more context.
- Report parental assets and student assets
- Parental assets typically include the value of checking and savings accounts, investments, the total value of 529 college savings and/or prepaid tuition plans, real estate/business/farm equity, and retirement accounts
- Student assets may include checking and savings accounts, investments, trusts, and Uniform Gifts (or Transfers) to Minors
- Which expenses should I report?
- Princeton's generous financial aid formula makes allowances for many expenses including taxes paid and costs of living
- We invite you, however, to also include other expeneses to provide context
- You may include school and college costs for siblings, unreimbursed medical and dental expenses, education loan payments, and other one-time or out-of-the-ordinary expenses
