Academic Advising at Middlebury

The goal of the academic advising program at Middlebury is to ensure that effective academic advising is available - and is taken advantage of by all students. Effective advising can be the result of a close relationship between students and their official faculty advisers, or by a combination of official advising and informal advising from a variety of mentors who share their expertise because of their interest in students' success at Middlebury.

Who can take a fifth course?

Sophomores and juniors may register for a fifth course during the fall or spring semester only with specific approval of their advisers and the dean of their commons during the drop/add period using the special orange add card. Normally, this permission is granted to students who have maintained an average of B or better in the two preceding semesters. Normally, first-year and other new students are not allowed to register for more than four courses.
