There are many places to find information and support at Princeton, and you can learn about resources tailored to your specific needs or interests by talking with your faculty adviser, your Dean or Director of Studies, your residential college peer advisers, or your course faculty. To get you started we’ve put together a list of the more common programs, offices, and sources of information.
Academic Guides and Online Resources
The Office of the Dean of the College maintains an advising page that is filled with resources designed to support Princeton students. Examples include the Undergraduate Announcement, Freshman Academic Guide, and the guide to Academic Integrity--along with many other important publications and links,
The Registrar's Office
On the registrar's page you'll find a lot of important information concerning course registration and important deadlines. Course Offerings provides the most complete and up-to-date listing of courses, and you'll also find academic calendars and important information about registering for courses (in TigerHub).
Advising for Health Professions
The Office of Health Professions Advising serves students and alumni of Princeton University who are planning or considering a career in health care. In addition to information for the pre-medical student, those interested in osteopathic medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, public health, or any of the other health professions may also find helpful material here.
Career Services at Princeton
Career Services is committed to educating the Undergraduate and Graduate students of Princeton University in the areas of self-assessment, career exploration, career planning and job hunting. It is never too early to check in with Career Services; you may want to start by checking out their Four-Year Action Plan.
The Office of International Programs provides information and resources for Princeton students who want to spend time abroad. In addition to administering summer and regular-term study abroad programs, this office also supports students seeking international internships.
Summer Course Information
Information about Princeton summer courses can be found on the Registrar's Summer Programs webpage, but please note that almost all of these courses are either designed for graduate students or take place abroad and require applications and/or language prerequisites. The majority of Princeton students who take summer courses do so at other colleges and universities in the United States. For courses outside of Princeton, use the preapproval form for external summer courses and speak to Dr. Axcelson, who approves outside courses for transfer credit.
