Transcripts / Credit Questions
Transcripts and grade reports from your program/university abroad must be sent directly to the Office for International Study. Keep in mind that it may take a little time for your grades to appear on your academic record in Banner and on your transcript. If you have questions about transcripts or credits, please contact Assistant Dean Lisa Johnson.
Students who studied abroad in Florence, Hamburg, Geneva or Paris should not complete the program evaluations below. You will be asked to submit a separate program evaluation; additional information will be provided via e-mail.
All study abroad students who participated on a Smith Consortium Program or a Smith-Approved program are required to submit an evaluation of their study abroad program to Smith at the conclusion of the program.
Please note: Transcripts will not be forwarded to the Registrar's Office for posting until an evaluation is received by the Office for International Study.
Students should complete the program evaluation below that corresponds to the term studied abroad (fall, spring or academic year).
Students who studied abroad on two different programs during the academic year should complete a program evaluation for each term and program (fall and spring).
