Middlebury Admissions Information

Middlebury College
Middlebury, VT (map)


Though located in the quiet, picturesque mountains of Vermont, Middlebury College offers a wealth of programs to connect its students to far-reaching places and people. Middlebury is a small liberal arts school where the focus is on learning and education, rather than just a high grade. The college’s environment is described as “challenging, yet relaxed” with students that are smart and driven, yet surprisingly humble. Middlebury’s aim is to cultivate its students’ analytical and intellectual abilities while training them to be leaders in an ever-changing world.

Middlebury is best-known for its foreign language programs, and with intensive summer language schools, along with the Middlebury Schools Abroad in more than thirty locations, the school certainly lives up to its reputation. The academic facilities are also some of the best in the country among small liberal arts colleges, with a brand-new, state-of-the-art library, dorms, and art, science and sports facilities.

Admissions Information

Admissions at Middlebury are quite selective, with students admitted based on their potential to succeed in a challenging academic setting. Most accepted students are in the top ten percent of their high school class and show commitment to a wide array of interests--both academic and otherwise. It is demonstration of this commitment that will set applicants apart, as well as evidence that they have challenged themselves with their high school coursework.

It is important to note that the admissions office at Middlebury advocates taking a gap year between high school and college. Middlebury also admits some of its students for a February enrollment rather than the usual September. However, the admissions office still recommends that students apply from high school and make the decision to defer enrollment once they have been accepted.
