Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and other eligible noncitizens applying for a degree seeking program must submit the FAFSA before we can finalize your financial aid offer letter.

Important FAFSA information:

  • If you are applying for enrollment in the 2024-2025 academic year, you should submit the 2024-2025 FAFSA.
  • Our FAFSA school code is 001241.
  • Get started today by creating your Federal Student Aid ID.

Please note: The Department of Education has announced that institutions will not receive 2024-2025 FAFSA applicant information until mid-March. If you have been admitted to Summer or Fall 2024, submit the MIIS SFS Financial Aid Application, instructions below, to receive an estimated financial aid offer. Finalized offers will be sent once FAFSA information is received.

Federal Verification

Some students who file the FAFSA are also selected for verification through the FAFSA process, as indicated on your Student Aid Report. 

Middlebury Institute will collect and process the documentation required to verify the student’s FAFSA information. You will not receive your final financial aid offer until all required forms have been submitted and reviewed.

Submit your MIIS SFS Financial Aid Application

Instructions to complete the MIIS SFS Financial Aid Application through Net Partner, Middlebury’s Financial Aid Portal, will be sent 48 hours after admission to all U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and other eligible noncitizens accepted to a degree seeking program.

Review your financial aid offer letter.

If you are an admitted student to one of our degree programs and you’ve submitted your FAFSA and MIIS SFS Financial Aid Application, we will email you an offer letter with instructions for accepting the aid offered to you.

Complete the loan disbursement requirements (if accepting).

If you accept all or a portion of the Federal loans offered, you must complete Entrance Counseling, Master Promissory Note(s), and the Student Financial Services Disclosure Form. Acceptance of a Graduate PLUS Loan also requires a Graduate PLUS Loan application. For instructions on completing these requirements please see Loan Instructions.

Receive your financial aid.

If you have completed the required steps above and are registered for classes, your financial aid will be released at the beginning of the semester. If the loan(s) you accepted exceeds tuition and fees, we will issue a refund to you within the first two weeks of the semester.

Note: If you are expecting a financial aid refund for living expenses, you must create a Student Choice Refund account through Nelnet to sign up for direct deposit. For information on creating or accessing your Nelnet account, please see Accessing Your Bill. If you do not sign up for direct deposit through Student Choice Refund, your refund will be processed as a check and mailed to the address on file with the Institute. Keep in mind, direct deposit takes 2-3 days to process, while a check can take up to 14 days to be received. To verify or update your mailing address, please visit BannerWeb.
