New Application Process
Students who wish to attend classes on the SMU-in-Taos campus must submit an online application and be accepted. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the late application deadline or courses fill, whichever comes first. Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible to best ensure enrollment in preferred term(s) and course(s). There is no application fee.
After applying, all students will be checked by SMU Student Affairs regarding their eligibility to attend SMU-in-Taos. Once accepted, students need to confirm their courses via email. Students will also need to log back onto their StudyAway application, complete signature documents and questionnaires to confirm their attendance. This step requires a financial commitment. We encourage students to coordinate with parents, academic advisors, SMU Financial Aid, etc. prior to making this financial commitment.
Students cannot enroll themselves in courses at SMU-in-Taos. The Taos Office will enroll students through my.SMU once they are confirmed/committed. At this time, tuition and course fees will be posted to the student account. Students should verify their enrollment via my.SMU and take note of the payment deadline for their term. Students should NOT make travel arrangements prior to confirming their enrollment in SMU-in-Taos.
Enrolled students are required to attend a Mandatory Orientation on the Dallas campus prior to their time in Taos.
Students cannot withdraw from SMU-in-Taos courses via my.SMU. To add, drop or swap a course, students must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and provide full name, SMU ID number and the term and course to be dropped/swapped. Room and board fees cannot be refunded at any time.
Please be aware of all SMU-in-Taos policies, including those relating to Student Affairs and cancellations/refunds, prior to applying for courses.
