Middlebury College, with an acceptance rate of only 17 percent, is a highly selective school. Over three-quarters of those who apply to the school are turned away each year. As part of the application, interested students will need to submit an application, SAT or ACT scores, high school transcripts, letters of recommendation, and an essay. For complete instructions, including important dates and deadlines, be sure to visit the school's website, or get in touch with the admissions office at Middlebury.

The school does not require on-campus interviews, but interested students are encouraged to visit and tour the campus.

Located in Robert Frost’s scenic hometown in Vermont, Middlebury College is probably best known for its foreign-language programs, but it excels in nearly all fields in the liberal arts and sciences. Middlebury College typically ranks among the top 10 liberal arts colleges in the country.

For its academic strengths, the college was awarded a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.
