Estimating Your Princeton Financial Aid Eligibility

Please indicate your country of residency. USA   CANADA  

The Estimator will not provide accurate results for families living outside of North America.

To determine whose information should be included on the questionnaire, click on the best description of your parents' marital status. If you are unsure which description to select, please read the section on separated or divorced parents in the Undergraduate Financial Aid Information and Application Instructions

Married or Remarried

  Your mother and father, or your custodial parent and stepparent if remarried, provide parental information.

Single or Widowed
  This describes a situation where your natural parents were never married or your parent is widowed and remains single. This parent provides his or her information only.

Separated or Divorced
  This describes a situation where your natural parents have separated or divorced and your custodial parent has not remarried. In most cases both your custodial parent and non-custodial parent should complete individual worksheets with their own household information. Please select the checkbox which best describes your current situation:

  Select this checkbox
  if you are able to provide information for both parents.
  Select this checkbox
  if only your custodial parent's information is available right now. You can continue to the worksheet, however we cannot provide an award estimate, only a calculation of the custodial parent and student contributions. You can return to this website to complete the process when your non-custodial parent's information is at hand.
  Select this checkbox
  if your non-custodial parent's information will not be available at all for compelling reasons. Your aid eligibility might be based only on your custodial parent's information. (Refer to the section on separated or divorced parents in the Undergraduate Financial Aid Information and Application Instructions for a further explanation.)

Self -Supporting
  Select this if you believe you are a self-supporting student. Unless you are an orphan, a ward of the court, or at least 25 years old, it is unlikely that we will waive the requirement for parental information on the Princeton Financial Aid Application.
