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
