Welcome Class of 2022!

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 21. Once you activate your netID you will be able to log in. Welcome to Princeton!

Hi Class of 2022! It’s time for you to introduce yourself to your academic adviser! Please complete the appropriate A.B. or B.S.E. program form on the Matriculation Online website. It is useful for your adviser to know about your academic preparation and aspirations. The form also asks you to list some courses you may be interested in taking just so they can get an idea of what you might want to register for when you get here in September. Please note, your course choices on this form are tentative, but will give your adviser a sense of your interests. Be sure to fill out your program form by August 15!
