Reason #19 You Should Visit
Lively guest lectures
Each year Smith College admits a limited number of visiting women students who wish to spend a semester or year at the college as nonmatriculating students. Though entering as nondegree candidates, visiting students may use their Smith coursework for credit at their own college or university.
As a visiting student, you will be enrolled in Smith courses, live in our residence halls and become involved in extracurricular activities. You may apply to transfer to Smith after one semester of a visiting program with approval from your home institution.

Applications are welcome from well-qualified students with strong academic records who are enrolled in accredited colleges and universities*. You may apply to spend a semester or a year at Smith during your sophomore, junior or senior years.
International students must be in their final year of studies leading to university entrance in their own country or currently enrolled in a university program abroad.
Students must be at least a sophomore and have a strong academic record that includes two or more women and gender studies courses. In this program you may take courses in any department or program at Smith in addition to the many women and gender studies offerings.
*Students studying at colleges participating in the 12-College Exchange (Amherst, Bowdoin, Connecticut College, Connecticut College National Theater Institute, Dartmouth, Mount Holyoke, Trinity, Vassar, Wellesley, Wesleyan, Wheaton and Williams-Mystic Seaport Program) as well as the Pomona-Smith Exchange must apply through the 12-College Exchange Program and not as visiting students.
TOEFL or IELTS scores are required of all students whose first language is not English.
If accepted, candidates will be expected to present examination results—Baccalaureate, Arbitur or GCSE, for example—before enrolling.
Smith’s policy is one of self-identification. The college considers for admission any applicant whose birth certificate reflects their gender as female, or who identifies as female. For more information see Gender Identity and Expression.
