Linguistics-MIIS Agreement

Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS)

In November of 2022, the Department of Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz signed a renewed 3-year agreement with the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS), a graduate school of Middlebury College. The agreement guarantees a 35% reduction in tuition for graduates of the UC Santa Cruz Linguistics or Language Studies majors. Depending on the program they apply to and the courses they’ve taken, students may also be able to have specific MIIS courses waived, allowing them to finish the MIIS programs with fewer credits.

Once a UCSC ​L​inguistics or ​L​anguage ​S​tudies major has received the​ir​ BA and has been admitted to Middlebury Institute's MATESOL or MATFL program, they may ask MIIS to waive ​a limited number of semester credits toward the graduate requirement.​

For UCSC coursework to be accepted, (a) the grade received must be B​ (3.0)​ or higher, (b) the course must have been completed no more than 5 years prior to the student's application to Middlebury Institute, and (c) a copy of the agreement between the Linguistics Department and Middlebury Institute must be submitted with the application for admission.

To determine eligibility for Middlebury Institute's Advanced Entry programs, consult the MIIS website.
