    all info on deadlines can be found at the smith website: Smith College: Transfer Requirements & Deadlines

    But the short answer is no, there is not rolling admission for transfers. For September entry the deadline is Feb. 1 and for January entry the deadline is Nov. 15. Also, International students who want financial aid can only apply for September entry (not sure if that's you, but hope it helps).

    I don't know if Smith has a preference either way in terms of sophomore or junior entry. You might be able to ask the admissions office directly about that.

    Hi, I'm currently applying as a transfer to Smith. They do prefer application to have been received by Feb 1st. However, if you open up an application on Common App. you have until May 15th (it is May, and I'm pretty sure that's the date).

    The transfer staff are amazing, so contact them.

    I'm still trying to complete my application. I'm applying for transfer too and yes, they accept the application until May 15th.

    Well that's dumb, they should update the transfer deadlines page. :-) Good luck you guys!
