Statement of Academic Purpose
Applicants will be required to upload a statement of academic purpose with the admission application in the space provided. Please write a statement of current academic and future career plans as they relate to the Princeton department to which the applicant is applying. In doing so, please cite relevant academic, professional and personal experiences that influenced the decision to apply for graduate admission and to obtain a graduate degree. The statement should not exceed 1,000 words and must be written in English.
Please be sure to review the final statement before uploading it and submitting the admission application. If an applicant submitted an application and needs to revise the statement of academic purpose, the applicant may upload the corrected version through the checklist if it is before the deadline. After the deadline, no revised statement of academic purpose will be accepted.
Applicants to the Department of Physics only notes that it is not necessary to describe how one became interested in physics. Applicants are usually better served by devoting the statement to a description of their research background and interests. However, if an applicant's path to applying to the Princeton Department of Physics was unusual or compelling, please feel free to describe it. In any case, the Statement of Purpose should focus on specific research interests at Princeton and any relevant research experience.
Applicants will be required to upload a resume or curriculum vitae with the admission application in the space provided. Resumes or curricula vitae should include employment, activities, community service, education, and academic or professional honors.
Applicants should be sure to review the final resume or curriculum vitae before uploading it and submitting an admission application. If an applicant submitted an application and needs to revise the resume or curriculum vitae, the applicant may upload the corrected version through the checklist if it is before the deadline. After the deadline, no revised resume of curriculum vitae will be accepted.
In order to apply for admission to the Graduate School, an applicant must supply three electronic letters of recommendation. The letters must be written in English and come from faculty members or other individuals well acquainted with the applicant's academic work.
Applicants to the Woodrow Wilson School M.P.A. and M.P.P. programs only must have one professional letter in addition to one academic reference letter. The third letter should come from a faculty member, administrator, or professional who can comment on commitment to public service.
The letters of recommendation must be submitted using our electronic recommendation service as part of the admission application. The applicant will be required to register the recommenders' email addresses within the application. Recommenders will then receive an email with directions on how to proceed. We suggest registering recommenders as early as possible to allow sufficient time for them to submit their letters of recommendation. An application does not need to be submitted in order to register recommenders. Please do not wait to submit an application because of pending letters.
If a recommender uses a letter service (e.g., Interfolio) the applicant will still need to provide the recommender's information in the admission application. Each recommender's email must be unique. If two or more of the recommenders use the same letter service, the recommendation letters may be uploaded as a group under one of the registered recommenders. This is completely acceptable; however, it will not be reflected on the checklist. The Graduate Admission team suggests that the applicant confirms with the letter service that they submitted all the letters requested from them.
For more details on how to manage recommenders, please visit the checklist page.
If a recommender has used the CollegeNET application system previously, he or she will simply log in with the password he or she created. If the recommender has forgotten his or her password, he or she can request a new one by clicking the link in the email received and selecting "Request a New Password". For further assistance, email email@example.com (link sends e-mail).
Applicants must upload a transcript including the key from all attended colleges or universities. An unofficial transcript must show the name of the student, name of the issuing institution, name of courses taken, and the grades received in those courses. Applicants with transcripts in languages other than English will need to upload an English translation along with such transcripts. Sealed copies of transcripts need to be opened, scanned, and uploaded. Transcripts should be scanned in black and white at a maximum resolution of 300dpi and no larger than 10MB. Screenshots from student portals will not be accepted as an unofficial transcript.
At the time of application, nothing needs to be mailed to the admission office. If offered admission and our offer is accepted, we require final official transcripts from every college or university from which the applicant had earned a degree.
Fall Semester Grades
Applicants will be encouraged to upload a current transcript which includes the fall semester grades from the college or university where currently enrolled. An applicant that is not a current student or the school does not provide fall semester grades will not have to provide this information.
If the fall semester grades are not available at the time of application submission, please log back into the application checklist and upload them when they become available. Screenshots from student portals will not be accepted as a current transcript.
Graduate School applicants are required to submit valid test scores to be considered for admission. International applicants must meet the English language proficiency requirements and may be required to submit TOEFL/IELTS test scores.
Test scores should be sent no later than three weeks before the deadline to ensure receipt of the official score report by the deadline.
English Language Tests
Graduate students must demonstrate a level of oral proficiency in the English language sufficient to participate successfully in all the various activities that comprise a graduate education, including classwork, research, research presentations, group meetings, project teamwork, and the teaching of undergraduates.

General Test (Preferred) or GMAT
The interdisciplinary Bendheim Center for Finance offers a Master in Finance (M.Fin.) degree. The distinctive feature of Princeton’s M.Fin. program is its strong emphasis on financial economics in addition to financial engineering and computational methods, as well as emerging tools of Fin Tech. Graduates of this program will have a solid understanding of the fundamental quantitative tools from computer science, economic theory, optimization, probability, and statistics, all of which are increasingly vital in the financial industry. To a greater degree than at any time in the past, there now exists a body of knowledge that is essential for the proper analysis and management of financial securities, portfolios, and the financial decisions of the firms. A driving force behind these developments is a lively exchange of ideas between academia and the financial industry, a collaboration that is the closest parallel in the social sciences to the academic-private sector interactions routinely seen in engineering and the applied sciences.
The M.Fin. program is intended to prepare students for a wide range of careers both inside and outside the financial industry, including applied research, financial engineering and technology, risk management, macroeconomic and financial forecasting, quantitative asset management and trading, financial consulting, and investment banking and corporate finance. The program does not require prior work experience, although it can be a plus. The Bendheim Center provides extensive career assistance to students, including help with internships and job placement. The program has a small number of merit-based fellowships (in the form of a fraction of the full-year’s tuition cost) that may be granted to top applicants.
The curriculum is designed to be completed in four semesters. Admission letters will specify the expected program length. The program is designed to be taken on a full-time basis. Classes are taught during the day, and full-time students take four or five courses per semester. All students are subject to an annual review of academic progress.
Princeton’s M.Fin. program draws upon the combined strength of a variety of departments, including the Departments of Computer Science, Economics, Operations Research and Financial Engineering, and others. The program has two major course components and a required summer internship between years one and two. First, required core courses will provide (1) the prerequisite skills in economics, finance, mathematics, computer science, and probability and statistics necessary for the study of finance at a sophisticated level; and (2) an integrated introduction to modern financial analysis. Second, a wide range of elective courses, drawn from many departments, will allow students to tailor the program to fit their own needs and interests. These courses will permit a range of opportunities for specialization and in-depth study along a number of coherent tracks of topics of interest to the student. Finally, the required summer internship is meant to provide additional practical experience in addressing real-world finance issues.
It is mandatory for incoming students to attend the Math Refresher course which is offered two weeks before classes start in the fall.
The program requirements consist of five core and 11 elective courses. At least five of the elective courses must be at the 500 level or above, and five must be from list 1 (a list maintained by the director of graduate studies and available on the Bendheim Center's website).
Students must maintain an overall grade average of B or better, as well as earn a passing grade in all core and elective courses. Note: Neither audited nor P/D/F courses will fulfill the program’s requirements.
While no master’s thesis is required, students interested in independent research may work with a Bendheim Center-affiliated faculty member on a topic relevant to finance, and by enrolling in the appropriate courses (FIN 560 in the fall or FIN 561 in the spring), they can receive academic credit equivalent to one elective course (thereby reducing the number of required electives).
Second-year students may serve as Assistants in Instruction (A.I.s) in courses or work as tutors. Each year the Undergraduate Certificate Program is in need of senior thesis tutoring for any majors outside of the Departments of Economics and Operations Research and Financial Engineering. Occasionally there is also a need for tutors for incoming first-year M.Fin. students. Tutors are required to spend a minimum of one hour per week with each tutee. Undergraduate Certificate tutoring is done on a group basis, with approximately five students per group.
The director of graduate studies must approve individual second-year M.Fin. students to serve as tutors or as A.I.s.
Internship or Research Project
All M.Fin. candidates are required to complete a summer internship between their first and second years by working at a financial institution. It is mandatory for incoming students to attend the Math Refresher course which is offered two weeks before classes start in the fall.
