Announcement for 2018-2019 Academic Year

Smith College is pleased to announce a change in the work-study policy for first year students. In response to feedback from faculty, staff and students and from the Pathways Campus Climate Study, effective in fall 2018 first-year students will no longer be required to work only in dining, housekeeping or the America Reads Program.

Because Dining Services is the largest and most convenient employer on campus, new students on work-study are still encouraged to sign up for hours to allow for immediate employment. Please refer to to obtain a log in for their WhenToWork day of scheduling on Wednesday, September 5, 12-8 PM. There will be a recommended informational meeting the same day from 4:15-5:30 PM in Weinstein Auditorium. 

Returning students on work-study are welcome to retain their positions in dining and housekeeping and are urged to apply for work-study positions before the fall semester begins. As a reminder, students who receive need-based work study have priority for all jobs. Non-work-study students ar not eligible to keep previously held positions, which must be readvertised for eligible students. No-work-study students are eligible to apply for campus jobs only after October 1 in the fall semester and two weeks after classes begin in the spring semester.
