Smith College Employees

Liz Klarich

Eligible Employees and their spouses who are not degree candidates may enroll in courses provided there is space available and the instructor gives approval. Employees are subject to the same academic rules and regulations as Smith students, including deadlines for papers and examinations, grading system, and academic honor system.

Enrolling for a Course

1. Apply With Human Resources through Workday

Apply to the Office of Human Resources in advance of the start of the semester following the directions in the document below.

2. Submit Add/Drop Form

The registar's office will receieve approved application from HR and will email an add/drop form. After classes have begun and space availability is confirmed, submit the add/drop form to the registrar's office. If the course involves a separate lab or discussion, registration for both sections is required.


If you wish to audit a course only see the information on the Auditors page. There is no fee for employees or spouses/dependents of employees.

Dropping a Course

You must officially drop a course by submitting to the registrar's office an add/drop form with the instructor's signature by the drop deadline, and notify Human Resources.

Any employee or spouse who does not complete a course for which they are registered and does not follow the official procedures for withdrawing will receive a failing grade.
