We welcome supplemental information from those of you who have a serious interest in the arts. If you would like to have your special talent in one or more of the arts considered as a part of the admissions process, you must submit the optional supplemental material using one or more of the links below. Middlebury College does not accept arts supplements via the Common App or through the mail; and merely listing the url of your submission in your Common Application will not result in it being reviewed -- you must submit it via Middlebury's own online submission form. Submissions are due November 10 for ED I, January 1 for ED II and Regular Decision.
Art work must be submitted online. Please note the title, date, medium and dimensions of each work. Art work submitted on CD's will not be reviewed. Sites that require the reviewer to register or download a program will result in the portfolio not being reviewed. The following sites (among others) have proven to be efficient for submitting art portfolios:
- Vimeo (for video work only, not 2-D work)
Instrumental or voice performances must be submitted online. The music sharing sites most commonly used are YouTube, MySpace, PureVolume and Google Sites. Please avoid sites for which registration is required.
Solo performances are preferred. Feel free to submit several samples that demonstrate your musicality, intonation, phrasing and repertoire, but preferably no more than 10-15 minutes.
For Theater, two monologues (of contrasting styles if possible) introduced by the applicant, totaling no more than four minutes, is preferred. If that is not possible, brief clips of performances, totaling no more than four minutes, are acceptable.
For Dance, please include no more than three samples of reasonable length as performer and/or choreographer. We want to experience the variety and strength of your ability. Please identify yourself if you are not the soloist. If you would like to include additional information such as a dance resume or letter of recommendation, please send directly to the Dance Department c/o Tiffany Rhynard, Artist in Residence in Dance.
Film or Video supplements must be submitted online. Video submissions can either be a complete piece, an excerpt from a longer piece, or a selection from multiple pieces, but in total they should not exceed 10 minutes. The student should clearly state what roles were played in the production (e.g. director, camera, editing, writing, etc.).
Please make sure your name is on all submissions.
