Placement Exams

Incoming students planning to enroll in courses in certain departments will need to take that department's exam. Please visit go/placementexaminfo  for detailed department instructions on placement exams, how to take them, and when exams will become available. Complete any online placement exams in August, before you arrive on campus, using a computer with web access.  

For students entering in September, placement exam information for Fall will be updated in June.

For students entering in February, placement exams are usually available starting in January. 

Class Registration

All fall first years will receive information about registering for the first year seminar in June. Registration for all other classes, and for transfer and exchange students, will happen during MiddView. Review degree requirements here and for more information about registration, click here.


Academic advising is central to the Middelbury experience, whether in your first-year seminar or the final stages of completing a major and writing your thesis.  Students begin the first semester with a first-year seminar, and the instructor of that small-group seminar serves as their advisor until they declare majors.  Learn more at go/advising.
