Middlebury’s undergraduate applications have increased by 36 percent over the past five years.

“We feel fortunate to experience another year of high interest and continued growth in applications from a wide range of students,” said Dean of Admissions Nicole Curvin. “The Admissions team is currently engaged in evaluation of another record-high pool of applicants for the Class of 2027 and 2027.5.”
