Princeton University Early Acceptance Rate Results for Class of 2026

12 JAN 2022

Princeton Early Application Acceptance Rate Withheld

Princeton University chose to withhold its admissions statistics for the Class of 2026. These statistics included Princeton’s early admissions rate, number of applicants, demographics of accepted students, and statistics about SAT scores and GPAs. 

According to an online statement, Princeton University has “made the decision not to release admission data during the early action, regular decision and transfer admission cycles. Instead, we will publish an announcement later in 2022 that focuses on the enrolled students who will join Princeton as the Class of 2026. We believe this decision will help us keep students central to our work and tamp down the anxiety of applicants.”

Due to the pandemic, Princeton did not offer an Early Action application option to the Class of 2025.
