Welcome Class of 2021!

Your Path to Princeton is your connection to a wealth of resources concerned with learning and living at Princeton. Explore at your leisure, read the frequently asked questions with blog posts from students and staff, and check back often for updates and announcements—it is one of our main ways of communicating with you! You will notice that some of the interactive elements of this site, including access to Matriculation Online forms, require a Princeton NetID; this will be sent to your personal email account on or about May 22. Once you activate your NetID you will be able to log in. Welcome to Princeton!

With Orientation behind us and the academic year off to its official start, we wanted to let you know about a usueful tool that can help you keep your activities, events, and deadlines all in one place: Princeton Timeline. This app shows you all of the activities, events and deadlines which you are scheduled to attend based on your membership in various groups, as well as events and activities you might be interested in attending based on your interests. You can download the Timeline app for Apple or Android or access it from a web browser at http://timeline.princeton.edu. But don’t forget - we still have more Orientation events taking place through the end of this week, so be sure to check out the Orientation Calendar in case there’s something you missed!

2017 Timeline

This timeline was designed to help you keep track of the many processes that occur over the summer as we prepare for your arrival. Many of the items require action on your part, so please take care to review it—and use the iCal feed to add the dates to your own calendar. Be sure to check back regularly as hyperlinks will be added to many Timeline entries as web materials become available.
