Admission and Aid

Experience the joy of discovery that comes from intellectual challenge and the freedom to explore new interests. Expand your mind in late night discussions with your housemates and in after-class conversations with faculty members who encourage you to reach further. At Smith, you’ll draw strength in belonging to a community that supports and encourages you to become your most powerful self—on campus and beyond.

Your dreams are priceless.
