Our mission at the class deans office is to help you make the most of your time at Smith. The class dean is responsible for your overall academic program. You are encouraged to see your dean privately throughout the year regarding any issue, whether academic or personal. Your class dean is available to assist with course registration and procedures, academic options and general advice on such matters as study abroad, summer school and leaves of absence. We work closely with the registrar’s office to ensure that you are meeting your degree requirements.
Tuesday, May 3, 2022 was the last meeting of Administrative Board for the Spring 2022 semester.
The Administrative Board meets during the academic year only. Administrative Board meetings will resume again after the start of the Fall 2022 semester.
Petitions received during the academic year by noon on Friday will be reviewed by the Administrative Board, in most cases, the following Tuesday. Petitions that are not complete, for example, missing instructor and/or adviser/s approvals, will not be reviewed until approvals are received. If Monday is a holiday, you need to submit your petition the previous Thursday by noon otherwise it will not be reviewed by the Administrative Board until a week from the following Tuesday. Submitting a petition does not guarantee that your request will be approved. Please note: the Administrative Board does not meet during the summer.
Planning on taking a summer or interterm course? Please see the registrar’s website for information on transfer credit.
