Current Students Applying for Financial Aid

Changing Aid Consideration

If you are a current student who received only federal aid in the prior year, or did not apply for aid in the prior year but would like to be considered for institutional aid in the upcoming year,  you must notify the Student Financial Services in writing so that your requirements can be updated.

Applying for Readmission

If you apply for readmission to Smith College you must complete your financial aid application by August 15 for fall readmission or January 4 for spring readmission. If you are applying for financial aid but do not complete the application by the deadline, your readmission application may be denied or any prior approval revoked. Review information available on the registrar's website for  details on the readmission process.
