Follow these steps to apply for financial aid at the Middlebury Institute.

Step 1: Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

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

Important FAFSA information:

  • Students can now submit a FAFSA as early as October 1, using prior-year income information. For example, on the 2018–2019 FAFSA, students can now apply using their 2016 income information.

  • Our FAFSA school code is 001241.

  • We may ask you to submit additional documentation, such as tax transcripts or verification of citizenship status. If we require additional information, we will contact you via email.

  • Get started today by creating your Federal Student Aid ID.

Step 2: Submit your financial aid application.

Complete and submit your financial aid application.

Our priority deadline is February 15. While we do not have a hard deadline to apply for financial aid, we do have limited need-based funding, so it is in your best interest to apply as early as possible for consideration. You do not need to wait until you have been admitted to one of our degree programs to apply for financial aid; however, we will not review your application until you’ve been admitted.

Step 3: Review your financial aid offer letter.

If you are an admitted student and you’ve submitted your FAFSA and Middlebury Institute financial aid application, we will email you an award letter with instructions for accepting the aid offered to you.

Step 4: Receive your financial aid award.

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 aid you accepted exceeds tuition and fees, we will issue a refund check to you within the first two weeks of the semester.
