Princeton netIDs for incoming students will be issued on or about May 22.


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 below require action on your part, so please take care to review the calendar—and use the iCal feed to add the dates to your own calendar. But be sure to check back, as hyperlinks will be added to many timeline entries as web materials become available. As always, more information on any of these topics can be found in the forums, as well as accessed through the Ask a Dean link on the left-hand side of this page.
