Important COVID-19 Information

In response to the extraordinary spread of COVID-19, like many other colleges and universities, Smith College has made the difficult decision to close all college buildings to the public and suspend on-campus events. As a result, the Office of Admission has canceled all visit programs, as well as campus tours, information sessions, on-campus interviews and group visits until further notice. For updates on Smith’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak, please visit the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) page.

A personal interview is optional for first-year and transfer students and is required for Ada Comstock Scholars. This one-to-one conversation allows you to tell us about yourself and to ask specific questions about Smith.

Schedule a Virtual Interview

Due to COVID-19, we are unable to offer on campus interviews at this time. However, prospective students may schedule a virtual interview with an admission counselor. Virtual interviews are currently available Monday through Friday and some Saturdays. To register for an interview, please consult the office calendar for available dates and times.


Virtual Interviews with Alumnae Volunteers

What is it like to be a student at Smith? Why not ask someone who has been there? The Office of Admission coordinates a worldwide network of alumnae volunteers who are eager to share their experiences and insights about Smith. Find a Smith alumna in your area.
