Important COVID-19 Information

The majority of buildings on Smith’s campus are open to the public. Information about access to specific buildings will be updated as it becomes available. Masks are required in all indoor spaces on campus. Guided campus tours are available for prospective students and their families. Registration is required. At this time, classes are not open to visitors and we are not able to host overnight visits. Virtual opportunities to learn more about Smith, including virtual information sessions and interviews, are available.

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.


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. Request an interview with an Alumnae Volunteer.
