Find Help When You Need It

Princeton is a caring and relatively small place, so it is not difficult to find support if you look for it. The University strives to provide you with the academic, personal and health resources to succeed on campus. We do assume, however, that you will seek out the help you need. 

To make the most of your academic experience, you’ll want to take advantage of the many resources designed to enhance your approach to research, writing and problem solving. Please consult the sections under Finding Help with Academic Work for the most up-to-date and comprehensive list of services for course-specific and general academic support. 

When it comes to finding jobs, internships and fellowships, you will want to familiarize yourself with the services offered by the Center for Career Development, the International Internship Program, Fellowship Advising and other programs on campus. 

Your residential college advising team is always a good first resource for advice and counsel. In addition, the University offers an extensive array of personal counseling and support services when particular needs arise.

The dean of the college administers funds to support senior thesis research and other academic activities. See our Senior Thesis Funding page for further information about the financial support available. In addition, Princeton has developed one of the best need-based financial aid programs in the country, administered through the Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid.
