Students interested in pursuing a semester with Middlebury Schools Abroad are encouraged do so through the internal online application process.

Application Process

Students should contact their Career and Academic Advisor to discuss incorporating a semester with Schools Abroad. You may also wish to discuss your options with Jen Holguin, the study abroad advisor in the Center for Advising & Career Services.

Students can begin an application on Middlebury's website. At the bottom of the page, you will see a link that reads, "Begin your application by selecting a program here." Find your program, click "Apply Now", and click the button indicating you are a Middlebury Institute student to access the internal application. The entire application process is online.

In addition to an essay and passport copy, there are a few materials required to complete the application:

  • Language evaluation--to be completed by the program coordinator of your language department
  • Major advisor approval--to be completed by your CACS advisor

Working with your advisor, you will request pre-approval for transfer of your language courses from Professor Naoko Matsuo and from Assistant Dean Toni Thomas regarding credit approval of degree-specific courses and electives.

Application Deadlines

Institute applications for Middlebury Schools Abroad are due by March 15th for Fall programs and October 1st for Spring programs.
