COVID-19: Essential Information

Transfer and Exchange Orientation

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.

While we do not yet know what the fall semester will look like, we are busy planning a warm welcome for you in whatever shape that takes. We know it might be hard for you to be planning for the fall with everything that is happening in the world.  We are here to answer your questions and to help you start to get connected to Middlebury.

President Laurie Patton will make an announcement about what our fall start will look like by June 22.  We are cautiously optimistic, and are hoping to have a safe, secure and open campus this fall. We will continue to be guided by the expertise of our health officials, public orders issued by the State of Vermont, and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (You can read the President’s full statement here. )

Between now and Move-In Day (September or February) our Orientation team will communicate regularly and directly with you through your Middlebury email accounts and also on our social media platforms.

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.If you find you have a question that cannot be answered by consulting the Orientation pages, please e-mail to, call the Orientation planning team at 802.443.3006 or visit the Facebook page.
