Early Arrival Registration

Early Arrival is a pre-orientation program that allows you, a new international student, extra time to recover from your travels around the world while learning about your U.S. visa status and the U.S. higher education system at Middlebury College. During Early Arrival, you will build connections with students, staff and faculty who will assist with your initial entry into the College and beyond. By participating in Early Arrival, you are allowed more time to acclimate to your new home in Middlebury, Vermont. Our hope is that this program will help you launch successfully into the next phase of your transition to Middlebury.

Early Arrival will cover specific topics such as resources on campus and your visa status and responsibilities. Participants will also enjoy organized and informal social activities. While the program is optional, most international students elect to participate.

For specific Early Arrival arrival dates, see our Early Arrival website.

ISSS will use your Middlebury College email address to communicate with you. So, please make sure you check your Middlebury email account regularly in the 3-4 months before your arrival.
