Princeton University has welcomed the Class of 2025 to campus with students coming from all 50 states — plus Washington, D. C., Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands — and 58 different countries. Eighteen percent are first-generation college students, 22% are lower-income students eligible for federal Pell grants and 62% qualify for financial aid.
Incoming students and their families can find important information about attending Princeton via the welcome website Your Path to Princeton.
Your Path to Princeton provides students with an introduction to the undergraduate experience and helps them forge connections with the University before they arrive on campus. The website serves as a central information portal for first-year students, giving them access to frequently asked questions about campus and academic life, information about move-in and Orientation, and other important University resources.
“We want to make the path to Princeton as smooth as possible for students and their families,” Senior Associate Dean of the College Claire Fowler said. “As incoming students and their families browse the website, they will become familiar with many of the things we think are important for students to know before we welcome them to campus in the fall.”
The website is publicly accessible, but incoming students will have to log in with their University NetIDs to access certain interactive features. The Class of 2025 will receive their NetIDs around May 17, enabling them to ask questions of residential college staff and access the Matriculation Online portal. Updates will be made throughout the spring and summer as new information becomes available.
The website is sponsored by the Office of the Dean of the College, in collaboration with the residential college staff.
