The Bulletin offers relevant notices, reminders, and deadlines for School for Social Work students. Students are encouraged to use the SSW Bulletin as a vehicle to post items that are relevant to their class or to the entire student body.

The Bulletin is updated weekly during the summer terms, and monthly throughout the fall and spring.

E-Billing Coming in November

The Financial Aid Office would like to remind students that the College has transitioned to e-billing, which means that paper bills will no longer be issued after October. Beginning in November, all bills due to the School will be issued electronically. More information to come, so be sure to check your Smith email account regularly.

Health Insurance

Students who have enrolled in the School's health insurance plan may have already seen that charge on their bills beginning 9/1/11, the coverage start date. Payment can be deferred until December, when your loan funds come in. You will not be charged interest fees during this period.
