As of October 17, 2019, the transfer application for Fall 2020 entry is now LIVE on the Common Application and the Universal College Application. Please refer to the Transfer Application Checklist for more information.
Princeton's Transfer program looks for a small group of exceptionally well-prepared students from a range of backgrounds, and we particularly encourage applications from students from low-income backgrounds, community college students, and U.S. military veterans.
Our transfer admission program involves a highly individualized holistic review of each applicant’s achievements, talents and potential to contribute to learning at Princeton, with the expectation that admitted students are prepared to thrive in our diverse and rigorous learning environment.
Transfer students, like first-year students, will be able to enroll in the fall term only. Most students will be expected to begin in their sophomore (second) year. However, in some cases, they may begin as juniors, or be required to enter as first-year students. In all cases, this standing is determined by Princeton faculty and college deans after an evaluation of transfer credit.
Additional information about the transfer program is also available through the Office of the Dean of the College's Programs for Access and Inclusion.
