Ada Comstock Scholars Tuition 2023–24

An Ada Comstock Scholar’s fees and grant aid are based on the number of credits for which they are enrolled.

Cost of Tuition Per Semester

16 and more credits (full time) $30,630
12 to 15 credits (full time) $22,920
8 to 11 credits (part time) $15,280

Fees and aid for Ada Comstock Scholars will be based on the number of credits in which the student is enrolled on the 15th day of each semester. After that deadline, fees and aid will be changed only if the Administrative Board gives special permission, and only if the change adds to your total number of credits.

Student Activities Fee

Full-time Ada Comstock Scholars are charged a student activity fee of $154 per semester.

Part-Time Students

Ada Comstock Scholars enrolled in fewer than 8 credits pay on a per credit basis at the rate of $1,910 per credit and are not eligible to receive institutional financial aid. All credits and charges are per semester.

Health Insurance 

$3,148 annually ($1,574 per semester). This fee may be waived if you have comparable health insurance that will cover you while in Massachusetts. Ada Comstock Scholars who receive need-based grant aid from Smith will receive a grant to cover this cost if they accept the Smith health insurance.

Housing Options Per Semester, 2023–24

Room Only $5,350
Conway Apartments* $11,255

*Conway Apartments are available by 12-month lease only, and include utilities. 

Other Costs Not Billed

There are costs that most students incur during the year. They can include:

  • Books and supplies. Plan for at least $400 per semester based on courses and availability of secondhand books.
  • Travel to and from Smith College
  • Personal expenses

Actual costs incurred will vary and are the student's responsibility.

Dining Options

All Ada Comstock Scholars are able to utilize Smith Dining Board options during the academic year via their OneCard access, regardless of housing status or financial aid eligibility. This benefit is not extended to students' dependents.
