Spring deadlines

Program fee

The total program fee is $8,000. Your non-refundable deposit will be credited toward this. If you have indicated that you wish to apply your Praxis funding, an additional $3,500 will be credited toward this. Based on your financial need level (as assessed by Student Financial Services), you may be offered an additional grant, which will also be credited toward the program fee. The remaining balance will be charged to your Smith account in April.

Passports and visas

You are required to have a valid passport that it will not expire within six (6) months of the end of the program. If you do not already have this, please apply for a passport now. Additionally, you are responsible for researching your visa requirements. International students (neither US citizen nor permanent resident) may see the Office for International Students and Scholars for assistance.

If you plan to study abroad the semester following this GES, please consult the Office for International Study. Study abroad in certain countries may be incompatible with summer activities or travel that prevents you (or your passport) from being actively engaged in obtaining your visa.

If you have any questions about the enrollment process, please contact Lisa Morde, at lmorde@smith.edu, 413-585-2697, or visit the Lewis Global Studies Center in Wright Hall.
