This handbook has been compiled in an effort to prepare you for your program of studies with the Language Schools.

If you read this material carefully, you will find the answers to many commonly asked and basic questions. However, Language Schools’ staff always welcomes your e-mails, phone calls, and inquiries, and we hope that you will continue to seek guidance and support as you prepare for your Language Schools experience. Our staff is available to talk to your family and friends and answer any questions they may have regarding your time at the summer session.

This handbook also includes links to Middlebury policies that apply to all language schools students (Please see the Middlebury Handbook, including Middlebury-wide Policies and Policies for Language Schools). It is important that students carefully review all of these policies.

Printed copies of this Handbook and the Middlebury Handbook (collectively referred to as “the Handbooks”)are available upon request at several Middlebury offices, including Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Schools, Dean of Language Schools, Title IX Coordinator, Judicial Affairs Officers, Human Relations Officers, Public Safety, and Human Resources.

The Language Schools Handbook and the Middlebury Handbook are published on the Middlebury Language Schools and Middlebury Handbook web sites, respectively. The Handbooks may be amended from time to time and therefore students should review the most current online version for any updates.  Any amendments  as published through the above-referenced web sites , shall supersede wholly any prior versions of the Handbook(s). Reasonable accommodations will be provided for persons with disabilities who need assistance in reviewing the Handbooks and/or filing or pursuing a complaint under applicable Middlebury policies, upon request.

In addition to the Language Schools and Middlebury Handbooks, all Language Schools students attending programs outside of Vermont (e.g., Mills College, Paris and Buenos Aires), are subject to the policies applicable to those programs.

Middlebury endeavors to present an accurate overview of the programs, facilities, and fees of the Language Schools in this handbook. However, Middlebury reserves the right to alter any program, facilities, or fees, described in this publication without notice or obligation.

We hope this information will be helpful and we wish you a productive and enjoyable summer session.
