From Middlebury College

Middlebury College welcomes the bold, the brave, the intelligent, the inquisitive, the global thinkers, the local activists, those who are ready to speak up and speak out. For more than 200 years, exceptional students have come to Middlebury for our progressive thinking, challenging academics, high expectations, and even higher outcomes. Explore Vermont, a state known for its mountains, music, wilderness, and winters, as well as its strong environmental ethos. We're home of the country's first Environmental Studies program, and the first "muggle" Quidditch team, and we are one of only two colleges in the East with their own ski areas. Cost won’t hold you back: we are a need-blind institution and will meet your full demonstrated financial need if you are accepted.

Affordability Assurance

Our generous financial aid program sets us apart. For accepted domestic students, we are one of fewer than 30 colleges that are both need blind and meet full financial need. That means your ability to pay will not be a factor in whether you’re admitted (international student admissions are need aware). We keep student loan levels low; most aid is given in grants that do not have to be repaid.
