NEXT STEPS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

• International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) offers visa-related services and provides advice and support to Middlebury College’s international student, faculty, and staff population. International students (i.e. non-U.S. citizens/lawful permanent residents) participating in MiddCORE must have a nonimmigrant U.S. visa status that allows them to pursue full-time study during the MiddCORE program dates. Tourist status (i.e. B-1/B-2/Visa Waiver Program-ESTA) does not allow enrollment in a full-time course load such as MiddCORE.

• If students are in the U.S. attending another U.S. college or university with a visa status that allows them to study full-time, please contact International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) with current visa documentation (a scanned copy of visa, passport ID pages, I-94 card, and I-20, DS2019 or other document used to obtain visa status). ISSS will review the documents to confirm a student’s eligibility to attend MiddCORE with his/her current visa status. Please email ISSS at isss@middlebury.edu with the necessary information, and respond to ISSS requests in a timely way. Students may also visit the ISSS website for more information.

• Important Tax Information for International Students:
All students who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. lawful permanent residents (i.e. green card holders) will receive a request for information from Middlebury’s Tax Office via email before the program begins. Students must submit the requested information in a timely manner. Please note that students may have a tax obligation on the scholarship or financial aid amount that exceeds tuition. If so, students will be obligated to pay the tax liability that will appear on the Middlebury bill.

• Foreign Nationals:
Based on visa history and passport information provided by foreign nationals prior to arriving at MiddCORE, the foreign national’s tax status is determined. Resident Aliens for tax purposes are treated for tax purposes like U.S. citizens (see above). For non-resident aliens for tax purposes funds received from the College for financial aid to cover room and board and other non-tuition expenses are reported by Middlebury College on IRS Form 1042-S, Foreign Person’s U.S. Source Income Subject to Withholding. These funds are taxable at 14% or 30% unless treaty benefits apply. Taxes are posted to the students account and are due to the College by the program start date. The tax withholding is also reported on Form 1042-S which is mailed the following February. For more information on which countries have tax treaties and similar questions go to Middlebury’s tax office website.
