We base financial aid decisions on the total cost of that education, broken down as follows for the 2016-2017 academic year:
Room & Board: $14,269
Student Activity Fee: $415
Books: $1,000 - This is an estimate of your expenses for textbooks and supplies for the academic year. Your actual costs may differ depending on the courses you take and the availability of used books. You will need to bring money with you for your books when you first arrive at Middlebury.
Personal: $1,000 - This is an estimate of expenses for personal items, entertainment, and clothing for the academic year. It is a conservative estimate, which will require careful budgeting on your part. Most students choose to use the income from their campus jobs to provide these funds.
Travel: Variable - This figure represents our recognition that you will incur costs to get here in the Fall and to get back again in the Spring. Students generally use a portion of their summer earnings to pay this expense.
Health Insurance: Please see information on the Student Financial Services website concerning requirements for student health insurance.
