Transfer and Exchange Orientation

Dear New Students:

It is a sincere pleasure to welcome you to Middlebury College. Congratulations on your acceptance as incoming Transfer and Exchange students! We look forward to meeting you when you arrive.  At this time we invite you to enjoy two well-earned pleasures: looking forward to your time at Middlebury, and beginning to acquaint yourself with the opportunities that await you on campus.

Before you arrive at Middlebury, you will receive a number of mailings 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, we will need you to respond quickly by sending us information that will help with rooming assignments, health accommodations, and more.

Please note that February Orientation for International Transfers and Exchanges will begin on Tuesday, February 5 (see Early Arrival for more information). February Orientation for U.S. Transfers will begin on Wednesday, February 6.  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 February, we encourage you to spend time on the Orientation Web site. We will be updating this site on a regular basis, although you should know that the final Transfer and Exchange Orientation schedule will not be posted until January. If you find you have a question that can’t be answered by consulting the Orientation page, please feel free to send an e-mail to orientation@middlebury.edu, or call us at 802.443.3103.
