Fall Semester Registration

Course selection for fall semester will begin July 15.  New for 2024: incoming students will join a pilot registration process that we hope will improve the registration experience for students in their first semester.  Students will be asked to select courses from a list of courses available to first-year students, and at the end of the course preference selection process, students will be placed in a full schedule of courses before their arrival on campus.  Much like the First Year Seminar selection process, this will not be first-come first-served, and at the end of the preference selection period, students will be placed in courses based on availability and scheduling parameters.

  • Green indicates a course for which you meet prerequisites
  • Yellow indicates a course with prerequisites that our records don’t show you meeting.    You can add a course with pre-reqs to your list, but you will not be placed in a course with pre-reqs unless you have received an override.

Only courses open to first-year students appear on the course preference selection list.  In addition, courses that are full (aka have no seats available) do not appear on the list, nor do courses that cannot be scheduled due to a time conflict with your first-year seminar.

Log in to your Banner Web and click on the “Academic Transcript” link in the Student Records tab. AP or IB credit that you have earned will be listed as transfer credit received by the institution. The credit is recorded as a sum total and each subject that was accepted is listed on its own line. 
If you think a subject is missing, please view the AP Policy or IB Policy page to see if that subject is accepted by Middlebury and if it has a required course before you can earn credit.   
If you do not see any credit awarded for your AP or IB scores, you can email registrar@middlebury.edu to see if they were received.
