Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

To apply for the Institute ESL program, applicants may submit an online application or request a paper application by emailing us at languages@miis.edu.

1. Start Your Application

Have a credit card ready to pay the non-refundable application fee of $50.00. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card and Diners Club.

Applicants can submit a TOEFL or IELTS score if they have one. Send score directly to the Admissions Office of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies: use the four-digit institution code 4507.

2. Interview

After you have submitted your application, you will be contacted by the ESL director for a short interview through Skype. 

Please note: We do not offer a low beginner level in the ESL program. We expect that students have studied English previously so that they know the alphabet and basic vocabulary, can read and write basic sentences, and can have simple conversations.

3. Decision

Within 2 days of your interview, you will receive your official decision by email.
