At Middlebury College, you’ll join a vibrant community with a history of progressive thinking, challenging academics, high expectations, and even higher outcomes.

A Holistic Process

We strive to understand our applicants in the fullest sense of who they are—in school, in their community, and as part of their family. Our admissions process is a holistic one in which we weigh multiple factors beyond test scores and grades. Your personal essay, teacher recommendations, cocurricular activities, individual background and story, and unique characteristics are all important to us. 

Middlebury’s admissions decisions are based on high school records, recommendations, activities and interests, and student writing. Most students rank in the top 10 percent of their high school classes and challenge themselves with rigorous course loads and a commitment to non-academic interests.

Our campus is home to about 2,500 students, with an additional 300 studying abroad in any given semester. About 10 percent of our students are non-U.S. citizens, and many others have lived abroad before college.
