Student Financial Center: View & Pay Your Account

You may view your tuition, fees, and incidental charges via the Student Financial Center on TigerHub for students, or from Tiger Family Hub (for authorized parents or guardians). Starting in August and each month thereafter, as new activity occurs, an email notification will direct you to the Student Financial Center where you may review account activity, make a payment, or request a refund. You can view your account activity or make a payment at any time. 

Princeton does not issue paper statements. However, you may print a statement by using the printer icon on the Student Financial Center main Account page. For an overview of the Student Financial Center navigation, review the navigational guide for graduate or undergraduate students.

Parent or Guardian Access for Undergraduate Students

The only way to access your student’s account or make electronic payments is through Tiger Family Hub. A network identifier (NetID) is required to log in. Princeton sends instructions on how to claim your parent or guardian NetID prior to the start of the academic year. Contact the OIT Support and Operations Center at 609-258-HELP (4357), email the helpdesk, or chat online from the OIT home page for assistance. Your student will also have to delegate your access.

Undergraduate Students

Within the Student Financial Center, you may view charge and payment activity, sign up for direct deposit, report an external scholarship (non-aid students only), enroll in the Monthly Payment Plan, and make electronic payments.

If there is a credit balance on your account, you can request a refund from the Refund tab after the start of classes each term. Your refund can be payable to you or directed to a number of payees including eating clubs, Co-Ops, and parents.

To authorize a parent/guardian access to your account from the Tiger Family Hub, please select them from the Delegation tab.  

Each month, an email notification will be sent as a reminder to check your account.   However, transactions are added daily and we encourage you to review your account often.

Graduate Students

Within the Student Financial Center, you may view charge and payment activity, sign up for direct deposit, and make electronic payments.

If there is a credit balance on your account, you can request a refund from the Refund tab after the start of classes each term.   

Each month, an email notification will be sent as a reminder to check your account.   A reminder will also be sent when there is an available credit balance.   Transactions are added daily and we encourage you to review your account often.

Payment Methods

Payments can be made electronically, by paper check, or by wire. The University does not accept credit cards or post-dated checks.

Electronic Payments
Electronic payments can be made from the Student Financial Center by selecting the Pay Now button on the main Account page. Both domestic and international electronic payments are accepted. You will be prompted to enter the amount of your payment and payment method. You have the option to save your domestic banking profile for future payments. International wire instructions, via Western Union, are provided. If you would like to wire your payment using an alternative provider, please contact Student Accounts at (609) 258-6378. 

Paper Checks
While we encourage you to make electronic payments, paper checks are accepted. Mail your check payment in U.S. Dollars to: 

Princeton University / SA
P.O. Box 7780-4716
Philadelphia, PA 19182-4716 

Please print a statement from the main Account page and include the remittance portion with your check. Include the student’s name and University ID number on your check. If you use a check servicer/auto bill payer, please note that the remittance number has changed and the student's PUID should replace any prior number referenced. Due to COVID-19, many University offices will not be staffed on campus.  As a result, we are not accepting walk-in payments, cash payments or overnight mailings that require signature.  We suggest you pay electronically from the Student Financial Center or mail your check to the bank address on the remittance portion of the student account statement. 

Request a Refund

To request a refund from your student account, visit the Student Financial Center and select the refund tab. If you signed up for direct deposit the refund will be automatically deposited in your bank account. If not, you will receive a check.
