Middlebury

Financial Aid

Concerned about cost? So are we, and we are committed to making Middlebury College affordable for all admitted undergraduate students, regardless of the resources of their families.

Here is what you need to know:

  • Our "need-blind" admissions policy

The College follows a need-blind admission policy for domestic students, which means that a student's financial status does not influence the admission decision. Middlebury makes every effort to help all candidates obtain the financial aid they need in the form of grants, loans, and work/study jobs. In the case of international students, Middlebury follows a need-aware admissions policy.

  • Middlebury's Aid Package

Middlebury will offer an aid package that meets 100 percent of your financial need as calculated by the Student Financial Services Office. If your family's financial situation does not change, we are committed to providing you a similar package each year you attend Middlebury.

  • Last Year's Freshman Class

Last year Middlebury provided grant aid to 42 percent of the incoming freshman class. For the incoming Class of 2016, the average grant was $36,277.

  • Student Loans

Student loans that are part of the financial aid package are offered at graduated levels, depending on family income:

Family income < $50,000 $1,000 per year
Family income $50,000 - $80,000 $2,000 per year
Family income > $80,000 $3,000 per year
