Early Arrival

As a new international student, including exchange and U.S. students living abroad, we invite you to arrive on campus a few days early to participate in Early Arrival. This pre-orientation program will allow you time to recover from your travels around the world, learn about your U.S. visa status and become familiar with concepts and resources that will help with your transition from home to the U.S.

During Early Arrival, you will be joined by ISSS staff and current Middlebury students who will assist you as you learn to navigate all aspects of life at Middlebury College. Registration for Early Arrival is required in order to participate
