Information for International Students

Princeton is proud of the diversity of its student population. We at HPA are always interested to speak with students from around the world to get a sense of what their experience with various healthcare systems has been and to learn about role models and inspirations around the globe. 

The process of preparing for and applying to U.S. health professional schools is the same whether or not you are a U.S. citizen—the differences relate to which health professional schools will consider international students, and what finance options are available. International prehealth students will be more limited than their U.S. peers in where they can apply, and private loans may require co-signers and/or funding in escrow. International prehealth students are encouraged to meet with HPA early in their undergraduate careers to discuss their plans.
