Our mission at the Class Deans office is to help you make the most of your time at Smith.

We oversee the academic progress and standing of all students. We work with you to identify and clarify academic options and requirements and help you when you have difficulties with your classes. We oversee departmental honors, offer advice about transfer credits, communicate with faculty regarding extensions and suggest ways to resolve academic issues or problems.

The options on Guidelines & Forms cover the wide range of issues that we help you address. Make an appointment or visit us during walk-in hours to discuss your questions.

Walk-in hour changed on Monday, Oct 24th for Dean of the Senior Class, Margaret Bruzelius from 9:30-11:00 to 11:00-12:00.


Walk-in hours for the Sophomore and Ada Comstock Class Dean, Andrea Rossi-Reder, will end at 3:00 p.m. (1/2 hour early) on Monday October 24, 2016.
