Our mission at the Class Deans office is to help you make the most of your time at Smith.

We oversee the academic progress and standing of all students. We work with you to identify and clarify academic options and requirements and help you when you have difficulties with your classes. We oversee departmental honors, offer advice about transfer credits, communicate with faculty regarding extensions and suggest ways to resolve academic issues or problems.

The options on Guidelines & Forms cover the wide range of issues that we help you address. Make an appointment or visit us during walk-in hours to discuss your questions.


Summer hours (8:00AM-4:00PM) begin Tuesday, May 31.

Walk-in hours for the spring semester have concluded. Please call the class deans office to schedule an appointment if you would like to meet with your dean.
