Student Financial Services is your one stop shop for Financial Aid, Education Financing, and Student Accounts. Our responsibilities include the areas of financial aid counseling and awarding, student account and education financing issues, payment plans, and loan repayment.
We serve all student populations on campus (including first-year and transfer applicants and returning undergraduates) and attending the Summer Language Schools, the C.V. Starr-Middlebury Schools Abroad, the Bread Loaf School of English, the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, and the Middlebury-Monterey Language Academy.
The Cost of a Middlebury Education
We understand that a Middlebury education represents a significant investment for any family. We base financial aid decisions on the total cost of that education, broken down as follows for the 2014-2015 academic year:
Comprehensive Fee ($58,753): The comprehensive fee is the sum of tuition, room, and board. There is also a billed student activity fee of $407 for the academic year.
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 for the Fall and to get back again for the Spring. Students generally use a portion of their summer earnings to pay this expense.
