How to Apply

  • Step I: Inquire

    Complete the Inquiry Form

    Complete our inquiry form before scheduling a visit. Once you fill out the inquiry form, domestic applicants will receive our viewbook; international applicants view it online

    An interview is not required, but it is highly recommended. A visit to campus helps us get to know you, and it helps you get to know Middlesex.  If you are a resident of China, Hong Kong, South Korea, or Taiwan and are unable to visit Middlesex for an interview, we encourage you to schedule an interview with the Council on International Education Exchange (CIEE).
