Eligible students interested in taking a course during interterm may register online according to the guidelines set forth for spring registration. Normally, only students enrolled at Smith College during both the fall and spring semesters are considered to be eligible.
Students are required to obtain their adviser's approval and, if necessary, the permission of the course instructor. Students should complete their interterm registration online according to the schedule established for spring registration in November.
Please refer to the Interterm Schedule of Classes to view course offerings for the upcoming Interterm.
*NOTE: Students wishing to register for NON-credit interterm classes, should consult the interterm website: http://www.smith.edu/interterm. Further questions about this program should be directed to Sue Briggs (x4903) in the Dean of the College's Office.
BannerWeb registration for interterm will be accessible beginning with the November advising period. All adds and drops can be processed online through BannerWeb through the posted deadlines. The online add and drop deadlines vary from course to course and are posted below:
Students should pay close attention to the specific deadlines for adding and dropping courses. Any student who does not attend and remains registered in a course after the deadline to drop will receive an unsatisfactory grade in the course.
The satisfactory/unsatisfactory grading option may be elected in interterm courses with the permission of the instructor. Courses taken S/U will count toward the 16-credit maximum permitted for the degree. Students may declare the option online prior to the add deadline for the course.
Students may not enroll in more than four credits during any one interterm and may accrue no more than 12 approved interterm credits at Smith or elsewhere toward their Smith degree.
Five College Courses
The Five College interchange does not apply to interterm courses. If you plan on taking courses in Interterm on one of the other campuses, you must have your courses approved by the registrar's office for transfer to your Smith degree and you must register at that campus and pay their course fees/tuition.
The college will consider for transfer credit academic interterm courses taken at other non-interchange institutions. The number of credits accepted for each interterm course (normally up to three) will be determined upon review of the credits assigned by the host institution. Courses must be apporved by the registrar's office for transfer to the Smith degree.
