Interviews


Important COVID-19 Information

All campus buildings are closed to the public until further notice. The Office of Admission is offering a limited number of guided tours for prospective students and families. Registration is required. All information sessions and interviews will continue to be conducted virtually.

Please consult A Culture of Care (Smith’s COVID-19 response plan) for information on maintaining a safe and healthy campus.


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.
