About

Princeton is a vibrant community that seeks to enroll students of all backgrounds and interests. We are a leader in ensuring admitted students can afford college, offering one of the strongest need-based financial aid programs in the country.

Through teaching and research, we educate people who will contribute to society and develop knowledge that will make a difference in the world.

Princeton University has a longstanding commitment to service, reflected in Princeton’s informal motto — Princeton in the nation’s service and the service of humanity — and exemplified by the extraordinary contributions that Princetonians make to society.

We are committed to making a Princeton education affordable to all. Our generous financial aid program allows undergraduates to graduate from Princeton debt free. Graduate students also benefit from significant University support and other funding resources.

The Graduate School is at the heart of Princeton’s teaching and research mission. We prepare graduate students for distinguished careers, and students from all disciplines and backgrounds are encouraged to apply to our Ph.D. and master’s programs. 

A vibrant community of learning that endeavors to fulfill its informal motto, '​'​in the nation's service and the service of humanity.'​'
