COVID-19: Essential Information

ISSS continues to operate remotely during summer 2021. By early September, we will update this site with an overview of our in-person and remote availability for fall semester.

Middlebury Welcomes the World

Middlebury is proud to welcome more than 600 international students, staff, and faculty during the academic year to Middlebury College in Vermont and  the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS) in Monterey, California. From June to August, an additional 300 international faculty, staff, and students join the Middlebury community to participate in our Middlebury Language Schools located in California and Vermont, and the Middlebury Bread Loaf School of English (BLSE) at sites in New Mexico and Vermont.

International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) works closely with Middlebury's incredibly accomplished and talented international students, staff, and faculty to ensure that they can work, study, or conduct research in Middlebury's many programs around the globe to achieve their goals. Our efforts are aimed at helping Middlebury pursue its mission of having our students "learn to engage the world."
