Important Updates About Visiting and Applying to Middlebury College

To our current and prospective students affected by the coronavirus: It is our hope that you are healthy and safe from the virus. We are aware that many schools are modifying their educational models in order to keep the virus from spreading. Middlebury will work with your school to understand the modifications put in place and will not allow these changes to negatively impact your application review.

Standardized test scores are not required for your application. We expect that you will fulfill the expectations set forth by your school to complete your high school diploma. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact the Middlebury Admissions Office at or at 802-443-3000.

Meet Our Students

In Their Words

Students have many reasons for choosing Middlebury. Once they get here, they discover things about themselves and the place that help shape who they are—and who they want to be.

See What They Say

After Middlebury

Some students choose careers in a range of fields at both established and emerging companies and organizations. Others continue their education in the health professions, law, and master’s and PhD programs.

See What They Do

Intellect is not wisdom. Middlebury will challenge you to take the next step, which is to understand the role of that knowledge in the world, how it has shaped human hearts and minds over centuries, and how it continues to do so.

— President Laurie L. Patton
