The Smith College board of trustees voted to begin accepting undergraduate applicants who consider themselves to be transgender women. The shift to a self-identification admissions policy at the women’s college in Northampton goes into effect for students submitting applications in the fall of 2015. Under the new admissions policy, applicants who were born male but identify as women are eligible for admission. Applicants must select “female” on the Common Application to be considered.
Smith College is now a co-ed school like virtually every other college in the United States. You can read Elizabeth Hungerford on this issue here.
