A college education is a very significant investment, but you don't have to be wealthy to afford Smith. We want to provide an outstanding education to qualified women from all economic backgrounds, and we meet the full documented need of each admitted student who completes the financial aid application by the published deadlines. We also offer financial advice to help all families manage the cost of college, whether or not they qualify for aid. This partnership between Smith and families has allowed many women to afford an investment in quality private education.

New for 2014-15 - Electronic Financial Aid Award Letters
Beginning in the summer of 2014, financial aid award letters will no longer be mailed to returning students. Instead, each student will receive an email (sent to her Smith email account) that her award letter is available to be viewed on Bannerweb. In an effort to contribute to Smith's sustainability initiatives, Student Financial Services will dramatically reduce the use of paper through this initiative, which conforms to environmental sustainability policies. This new policy will also contribute to a more efficient notification system so students will have access of their financial aid awards for the upcoming academic year sooner than with a paper mailing. We hope this will assist families with their financial planning. Parents or any authorized people will be able to view the financial aid award via Touchnet.
New Student Employment Website
While JobX is the tool to use for advertising student jobs and hiring students, there is now a new Smith Student Employment webpage http://www.smith.edu/student-employment to disseminate information regarding eligibility, policies, procedures, and how-to-use JobX, etc., for both students and employers (faculty, staff and off-campus employers). Bookmark the page and refer to it often for answers to any questions regarding student employment.
