Our need-based aid program is designed to make Princeton accessible to students across all socioeconomic backgrounds. How Princeton calculates the family contribution is simple and transparent. Most families will be asked to contribute 25% of income above $100,000 and 5% of assets (excluding primary residence and retirement accounts) above $150,000. This may vary based on country of residence.
Because of our commitment to supporting an economically diverse student body, we will meet 100% of the difference between the family contribution and Princeton’s cost of attendance with grant aid that does not need to be repaid for all students regardless of citizenship. Our no-loan policy ensures that need is met through grants rather than loans.
