COVID-19 Updates, Restrictions, Cancellations - More information



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 highly recommended 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. Please consult the office calendar for available dates and times.
