Here are general instructions for completing your Middlebury Institute application. Be sure to review your degree program of choice for details and specific requirements.

Start Dates

We offer fall admission for all degree programs and spring admission for select programs. Check at the top of the curriculum page for your degree program of choice to see if a spring start is an option. For start dates, visit the academic calendar.

Application Deadlines

Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you apply, the more likely you are to receive our largest scholarships, so we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.

Spring 2022 Admission

December 5: Extended Deadline for U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, and remote students

  • If you do not require a visa to study in the U.S., we encourage you to apply before our December 5 extended deadline. Scholarships are still available.

  • International students interested in online localization learning paths for non-degree students can still apply as you do not require a visa to enroll.

  • International students interested in starting a program remotely and transitioning to in-person by the start of your second semester can still apply as you have more time to apply for your visa.

  • International students interested in starting a program in person may still be able to apply for a spring 2022 start depending on visa processing times, which vary by country. Contact your enrollment advisor to discuss your options.
