Middlebury College will offer its free annual College Counseling Workshop, sponsored by the college’s admissions office, on Friday, June 5, from 8:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at McCardell Bicentennial Hall on Bicentennial Way off of College Street (Route 125). The event is open to the public–high school age children and grandchildren of Middlebury alumni, faculty, and staff are invited, as are students from Vermont high schools. Preference is given to high school juniors.

The program gives an overview of the general selective college application process and does not focus on Middlebury College. The workshop covers five areas: how to choose a college; how to visit a college; how a college admits its class; financial aid; and understanding the common application.

Following the final presentation, workshop participants may schedule individual afternoon appointments with Middlebury’s Student Financial Services office.

Any students who are interested specifically in Middlebury College may join a group information session at 1:30 p.m. followed by campus tours at 2:30 p.m. Parents are invited to all activities.

Registration for the free workshop is required, and the deadline to register is Wednesday, June 3.
