Alumni Admissions Program
The Alumni Admissions Program (AAP) was established in 1974 to use the energy and enthusiasm of Middlebury alumni in the continuing effort to attract outstanding students to the College.
There are now over 3,800 alumni throughout the world who participate in this year round support program. These alums are assigned to individual committees (ranging in size up to near 200 volunteers) defined by either the volunteers' country, state or community of residence. Each of the 159 committees is headed by an AAP chairperson who assigns applicants to Middlebury graduates from the committee area. The purpose of these committees is to assist the Admissions staff in contacting applicants, providing information about the College, conducting informative interviews that are used in the decision-making process and encouraging admitted students to attend Middlebury.
Volunteers conduct interviews with prospective students to provide information about Middlebury and then submit interview reports on each student contacted. Alumni interviews are typically scheduled during the month of November for Early Decision I students and January for Early Decision II, and January through the first week in February for Regular Decision students. In addition to offering interviews to over 6,000 applicants in 2012-13, alumni volunteers represent Middlebury at local college fairs in the fall and spring.
