Welcome Class of 2023!

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 20. Once you activate your NetID you will be able to log in. Welcome to Princeton!

Hello 2023 Tigers! Your Princeton netID was recently sent to your home email address. As soon as you activate it, you will have access to the password-protected sections on this website, most importantly Matriculation Online, which contains all of the forms we need you to complete before we can enroll you at Princeton. The first forms are due on June 14, 2019, so please act soon! If you did not receive your netID, please contact the OIT Help Desk at 609-258-4357. Please check back regularly for updates and announcements.
