Program in Continuing Education
Under the University's Program in Continuing Education, members of the Faculty with at least six months of service at 50 percent duty time and their spouses, same-sex domestic partners, and dependents may enroll in one course at Princeton University each semester at a reduced tuition rate. Admission to the program is selective, based on the quality of the applicant's academic and nonacademic experience as related to the plan of study. Applicants are asked to submit letters of reference, transcripts, and test scores, if available. Admission decisions are made by the Director of the Program in Continuing Education. The Office of the Dean of the Graduate School is consulted when an applicant wishes to enroll in a graduate course. Continuing education students fully participate in class and receive a transcript of grades for completed courses. However, they are enrolled on a term-by-term basis and are not eligible for a Princeton degree. Each year, the Program in Continuing Education announces the scale of tuition charges. For further information, call the Office of Community and Regional Affairs at (609) 258-3204 or visit the Continuing Education website.
