Application Fee Waiver Information

  1.        Partner Programs. Applicants who have participated in certain partner programs aimed at broadening educational access automatically receive a fee waiver within the application system.  Such applicants check a box within the application indicating their participation and upload a letter from the program verifying their participation.  The partner programs are listed on the graduate school website - https://gradschool.princeton.edu/admission/applying-princeton/deadlines-and-fees/application-fee-waivers 
  2.        Financial Hardship. Applicants who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents may request a fee waiver based on financial hardship. Applicants will fill out a short questionnaire providing their current student debt and income. In an effort to reduce barriers and increase access, applicants who make this request do not need to provide additional evidence of their financial hardship.  Once an applicant has made a fee waiver request based on financial hardship, the Graduate School admission team will review the request.  Within three business days, the applicant will receive confirmation of approval, and the application fee will be waived.
