Transfer and Exchange Orientation

Dear New Transfer & Exchange Students:

Congratulations on your acceptance! It is a sincere pleasure to welcome you to Middlebury College. Transfer and Exchange students are an integral part of the Middlebury community, and we look forward to meeting you when you arrive. Our hope is that you are excited about this new journey at Middlebury and that you are beginning to acquaint yourself with the opportunities that await you on campus.

In the months to come, you will receive a number of mailings from Middlebury containing information about your arrival, orientation, course selection, and various aspects of student life on campus. We urge you to read these materials carefully; in some cases, response to these materials will need to be quick and thorough because it will help with rooming assignments, health accommodations, and more.

Please note that September Orientation for International Transfers and Exchanges will begin on Friday, August 30 (see Early Arrival for more information). September Orientation for U.S. Transfers will begin on Monday, September 2. All students should plan to arrive on the first day noted.

For quick answers to the many questions that might emerge for you between now and September, we encourage you to spend time on this website. The webpages will be updated on a regular basis, although you should know that the final Transfer and Exchange Orientation schedule will not be posted until much later in the summer. If you find you have a question that cannot be answered by consulting the Orientation pages, please feel free to send an e-mail to, call the Orientation planning team at 802.443.3103 or visit the Facebook page.
