I have not yet met with Stacey and her appointment slots are full for the rest of J-term – what do I do?
You still need to complete the Middlebury Study Abroad Application by Feb. 1, but you can sign up to meet with Stacey at the beginning of spring semester. If you need to make changes to your application at that time, that should not be a problem (you may need to re-do parts of the application that are program/university-specific, but that can be addressed at that time).
I am applying to multiple universities abroad – do I need to complete multiple Middlebury Study Abroad Applications?
You only need to complete one Middlebury application, even if you are applying to multiple universities – complete the Middlebury application for your first choice, then later if you need to change it, that should be fine, as long as your adviser approves. If you change programs/universities, you may need to re-do parts of the application that are program/university-specific, but that should not be a problem. You should indicate in your Middlebury application that you are applying to additional universities (and which ones). NOTE: the exception to this is if you are applying to one of the UK exchanges (East Anglia or Nottingham) and are also applying to other universities, please complete your Middlebury Study Abroad Application for the exchange university, since we need to know right away how many students are applying for the exchange.
If you are applying to two different programs/universities for two different semesters, then you DO need to complete a Middlebury Study Abroad Application for both semesters/programs.
I saved an application, now where can I find it?
Go to studyabroad.middlebury.edu and use the log-in links at the top of the page to access your existing application.
I'm also applying to Language School. Does my language professor need to complete two separate recommendations?
Great! No, your professor only needs to complete the language assessment once. Let us know that your professor already completed an assessment and we will obtain a copy from the Language School Coordinator.
What do I do if my major advisor is also my most recent language professor?
Please request the language assessment form from your professor using the online request. Then, ask your professor to email firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate that he/she is also your major advisor and approves of your plans to study abroad.
Do I need to declare my major before I can apply to go abroad?
Yes. You must declare your major by February 1st.
I started an application, but decided I want to go in a different semester. Should I start a new application?
The easiest thing to do is actually to email the Coordinator of your study abroad program and ask us to switch your program to a different semester.
