Congratulation, Graduates!

Graduating students please keep the following in mind:

Your Smith Mail and Smith Portal access will expire Sept 30th (May graduates) (January 30th for SSW graduates)

If you don't already have a non-Smith email account (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.), now is the time to create one. Plan ahead, do not use your Smith email account as a contact address on applications after graduation. See below for more instructions.

Access BannerWeb

Your BannerWeb account remains active and your BannerWeb PIN never expires, but once your network account expires, you can no longer access BannerWeb through the Smith Portal. Instead, you will need to log in to BannerWeb directly using your Smith ID number and BannerWeb PIN. Any time after graduation, you can call the IT Service Center at 413-585-4487 to request a PIN reset

Smith Mail Instructions:

  • If you are working on campus after the expiration date, have your supervisor email with your dates of employment so your account can be extended.

  • If you are continuing at Smith in a graduate program, your account will automatically be extended and you do not need to contact us.

  • If you used your Smith email address to set up any external accounts like Facebook, Apple ID, Twitter, YouTube, Adobe Creative Cloud, Office 365 etc., be sure to change the email address for those accounts before they expire.
