Princeton Early Admissions

Princeton has cancelled its single-choice early action (SCEA) program for the Class of 2025.

Princeton offered admission to 791 students in its early pool to the Class of 2024 (although the university coyly refrains from telling us how many students applied, suggesting it, too, saw a smaller pool). Of those admitted, 48 percent students who self-identify as students of color, 16 percent are from low income backgrounds, 13 percent are first generation college students, and 11 percent are international students.

Princeton University received over 5,000 early action applications and accepted 791 applicants.
