Congratulations and welcome to the Middlebury Institute! 

After confirming your enrollment by submitting your tuition deposit, the following steps prepare new students for orientation and the first semester at the Institute. 

Review the New Student Checklist

We are excited to have you join us this fall! Learn more about your next steps on our new student checklist.

Join MIcommunity To Make Connections

MIcommunity is the private social network for the Institute. Admitted students, current students, staff, and faculty utilize the space to connect, share, and collaborate.

After you are admitted, you will receive an email with instructions on how to access MIcommmunity. After you submit your deposit, new areas of the platform open to you, including a private group to help you secure housing, an All Students group where all current students engage, and student-created groups for clubs, initiatives, interests, projects, and more.

Activate Your Middlebury Network Account

For incoming students who have submitted a tuition deposit, your Middlebury network account is created six months prior to the start of your first semester. You will receive an email from Middlebury ITS that includes instructions on how to activate your Middlebury account. You will use this account to access Canvas (our learning management system), your Middlebury email, BannerWeb, and more. 

You will receive the email with activation instructions from Middlebury ITS two-to-four business days after you have submitted your tuition deposit.

More information about network accounts, including instructions to reset passwords, is available here.

Check Out Our Housing Resources

We have a host of resources to help you find on- or off-campus housing. Make sure to join one of our upcoming housing huddle webinars.

Complete Orientation

New student orientation is made up of three components: the Getting Started at MIIS self-paced and online course, a hybrid Welcome Week, and cohort-based activities during the semester. Some of the content is mandatory depending on your program. All incoming students are encouraged to participate in relevant content.
