A non-U.S. citizen (Canadian citizens excepted) will have her Expected Family Contribution remain the same each year she attends Smith. The self-help portion of the award (loan and on-campus work) will increase each year to partially offset increases in our billed costs. The Smith Grant will also be adjusted so that the total family contribution remains stable. Cost increases not covered by aid increases are the responsibility of the student and her family. No yearly reapplication for aid is necessary.
Please see our Policy for Review and Appeal of Need-based Financial Aid Awards.
U.S. citizens and permanent residents
and Canadian residents must reapply for aid each year.
International students are required to accept the College's Health Insurance Plan unless their insurance company is
