Princeton Admitted 1498 Students to the Class of 2025

 The University’s undergraduate admission office has mailed letters to students admitted in the regular-decision applicant pool, and applicants will be able to see their decisions via secure online access starting today at 7 p.m. EDT. Close to 100 students were admitted in December 2020 through the QuestBridge National College Match program, which is a binding admission process at Princeton.

The Admission Office suspended its single-choice early action program for fall 2021 entry due to the pandemic and the many disruptions to their high school coursework experienced by students around the world. The early action admission program will be reinstated for next year’s cycle.

For the Class of 2025, Princeton received 37,601 applications through the regular decision program. The applicant pool included students from among 12,298 high schools from 164 countries.

Of the students offered admission, 52% are women and 48% are men. Sixty-four percent of the admitted students come from public schools. Twenty-four percent of admitted students indicated they want to study engineering, and 15% are interested in studying the humanities. Seven percent of admitted students indicated they were undecided. Children of Princeton alumni account for 10% of the admitted students.

The students come from all 50 states, plus Washington, D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and are citizens of 74 countries. International students represent 14% of the admitted students.
