Smith College awards need-based aid to non-U.S. citizens, both first year and September transfer applicants. Please note: International transfer students who are applying for need-based aid may not apply for January entrance. The pool of international students is highly competitive and the level of support provided from the college ranges widely, depending on particular family circumstances. Aid is determined based on the information provided by the family on the Financial Aid Application, along with tax or income statements.
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 increase 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.
U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and Canadian residents must reapply for aid each year.
Apply for financial aid by the deadlines to qualify. Do not wait to be admitted to the College before applying for aid. International applicants to the College who do not apply for aid prior to admission are not eligible to receive institutional aid from Smith at any time.
