First-Year International Traditional Students

2017-18 Financial Aid

Smith College awards need-based aid to non-U.S. citizens, both first-year and September-transfer applicants. The pool of international students is highly competitive and the level of support provided from the college ranges widely, depending on particular family circumstances. Aid is determined based on the information provided by the family on the Financial Aid Application, along with tax or income statements.

A non-U.S. citizen will have her expected family contribution remain the same each year she attends Smith. The self-help portion of the award (loan and on-campus work) will increase each year to partially offset increase in our billed costs. The Smith Grant will also be adjusted so that the total family contribution remains stable. Cost increases not covered by aid increases are the responsibility of the student and her family.

Please note: If your family lives in the United States, and files a U.S. tax return, you must also submit that return.
