Middlebury students should continue to use the college e-mail address (email@example.com). Students from other colleges and universities are issued a Middlebury email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) upon enrollment in the program. This Middlebury-issued email address will be used by Middlebury for official communication with students. The College expects that such communications, many of which are time-critical, will be received and read in a timely fashion. Middlebury provides an e-mail forwarding services that allows students to read their email via other service providers. Students who choose to forward their email from the Middlebury.edu address to another address should be aware that sometimes emails or attachments may be lost; this will not constitute an excuse for a student’s lack of awareness or response.
