Students enrolled in long- or short-term programs are required to have health insurance. To meet this requirement, you must ensure you have health insurance by the first day of each semester. Learn more about obtaining health insurance, review resources and helpful information to inform your plan selection, and learn about some California-specific options here.
The Institute recognizes and supports the standards set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, which are designed to eliminate discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities. The Institute is committed to making reasonable accommodations for qualified students with disabilities as required by law.

Middlebury College Offerings
Middlebury College has a number of online programs and self-guided resources that are available to all Middlebury students, including those at the Institute.
Health educators based in Vermont are excited to partner with students across Middlebury programs to support health and well-being. Health coaching involves supporting students as they set goals, name challenges, unearth values & strengths, and access intrinsic motivations to develop and sustain healthy behaviors and attitudes. Students can schedule up to two follow up appointments with a health educator for a total of three coaching sessions. Health coaching is never a replacement for medical care or mental health counseling and is not appropriate to address crisis or emergency situations. Check here to learn more.
