Bottom line

If you can afford it, Princeton is far from cheap. A year’s tuition is more than $40,000, plus about $13,000 in room and board. You’ll pay another $545 in fees, not to mention personal and academic expenses each year. These figures are nothing to scoff at. However, if you qualify for aid, you’ll be granted the amount you need, without loans.
