Welcome to the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey.

What's next?

Submit your deposit

Follow the instructions provided to you in your admission letter.

Deposited students will be invited to join MICommunity, an online space to meet and connect with other incoming students, faculty from your program, your career and academic advisor, alumni, and current students.

MIcommunity invitations will be sent in mid-June for fall and mid-October for spring.

Join the admitted student Facebook or WeChat group

I am excited to invite you to join our admitted student Facebook group. For those of you in China, we will be launching a WeChat group—more on that soon! 

These groups are intended to help you connect with your fellow incoming students, get the latest news from around campus and our community, and give you a space to ask those burning questions about this next step in your jump-starting your career.

Before posting, group members are encouraged to review the Institute’s Social Media Guide. Participating members are expected to keep content appropriate and relevant.

Join the Facebook group.

Connect with an alum or current student

Get advice from people who have been where you are; reach out to your enrollment advisor to be connected to an alum or current student.

Talk to your faculty

Our faculty bring academic expertise and extensive professional experience to the classroom. Moreover, our favorable student to faculty ratio means that you can get personal mentorship throughout your time at the Institute. You should have already received an email from your program chair (or you will soon) and if you would like to speak to any other faculty please contact your enrollment advisor.

Speak to your career and academic advisor

If you have questions for your career and academic advisor you can schedule a meeting with them using the links below:

  • MPA (and joint BA/MPA)
  • Translation, Translation and Interpretation, and Conference Interpretation

Experience your new community firsthand

Visit campus to meet your peers, current students, alumni, staff, and faculty.
