Placement Exams

Incoming students planning to enroll in courses in certain departments may need to take placement exams or follow special instructions. Check the Placement Exam site here for information about exam formats, instructions, and availability. You must be logged into your Middlebury google account to view the site. Some exams will be offered beginning August 1. Other exams will be offered a little later in August; a few exam interviews will be offered during the orientation period. Complete any online placement exams by August 27, before you arrive on campus, using a computer with web access. For Feb students, your placement exams will be available starting in January with more details shared later in the fall. 

Class Registration

All fall first years will receive information about registering for the first year seminar in June. Registration for all other classes, and for transfer and exchange students, will happen during MiddView on Friday, September 10. Feb students will register for their first year seminar in January and all other classes during Feb orientation. Review degree requirements and find more information about registration.


Academic advising is central to the Middlebury experience, whether in your first-year seminar or the final stages of completing a major and writing your thesis. Students begin the first semester with a first-year seminar, and the instructor of that small-group seminar serves as their advisor until they declare majors. Learn more at go/advising.
