New Student Forms

Required Forms

Forms for Fall 2021

All new entering students—first-years, transfer and visiting students, and Ada Comstock Scholars—are asked to fill out a number of questionnaires, forms and agreements as they begin their Smith career. The forms are designed to help us get to know you better, allow you to access campus resources, help you understand policies and ensure that we have the most up-to-date information about you.

You will access many of the forms and questionnaires in Workday, Smith’s information management system. You will use Workday for various things while at Smith, such as registering for courses, viewing your class schedule, and searching for and applying for campus jobs. To log in to Workday, you need your campus email and password.

Schedule for New Student Forms

To help you keep track of forms and questionnaires, following is a checklist of the tasks you’ll receive in your Workday inbox and their due dates. You’ll receive the forms in three batches. You also do not need to complete them all in one sitting. If you need help with these processes in Workday, please send a message to We look forward to seeing you in the fall!
