Welcome Class of 2024!

Your Path to Princeton is your connection to a wealth of resources concerned with learning and living at Princeton. Explore at your leisure, and check back often for updates and announcements—it is one of our main ways of communicating with you! Information on this website is subject to change as plans for the fall semester continue to evolve. Updated information can be found on Princeton’s coronavirus response site.

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.
