New Student Forms & Questionnaires

Workday Forms & Questionnaires

Required for Spring 2022

All new entering students—first-years, transfer and visiting students, and Ada Comstock Scholars—are asked to fill out a number of questionnaires, forms and agreements as they begin their Smith career. The forms are designed to help us get to know you better, allow you to access campus resources, help you understand policies and ensure that we have the most up-to-date information about you.You will access many of the forms and questionnaires in Workday, Smith’s information management system. You will use Workday for various things while at Smith, such as registering for courses, viewing your class schedule, and searching for and applying for campus jobs. To log in to Workday, you need your campus email and password.
