Applications are now being accepted for the incoming Class of 2015. Deadline is December 1, 2014. Please check the graduate school webpage for additional information.

We require a completed web based application including:

  1. Official transcripts of your grades
  2. Three letters of recommendation
  3. For students whose native language is not English and who have not received their undergraduate education in a U.S. college or university: official TOEFL exam scores from ETS

Applicants are required to take the GRE examination from ETS and to request that scores be sent directly to Princeton. This test can be taken all over the world. Almost all applicants submit scores for the GRE General Test. Many applicants also submit scores for one of the science Subject Tests.

Application Information

All applications for graduate study are processed through the University's Graduate Admissions Office, which provides an on-line application.

Our school code for GRE and TOEFL is 2672. No department code is required.

Fee waivers are available for US citizens or permanent residents only, and must be requested through the web application. Please ensure that your recommendation letters and test scores are routed to the Graduate Admissions Office in a timely manner.

Financial Support

All admitted students receive full financial support for the duration of their Ph.D., including tuition, a competitive stipend, and health benefits. This support is made possible through a combination of funds from Princeton University, federal grants to PNI, generous private donations, and grants to faculty members.
