Contact SMTD Admissions

The SMTD Admissions team is working in a hybrid in-person and remote combination. Until public health guidelines improve, personnel will gladly meet with prospective students, faculty, staff, and students by appointment. The best way to contact Admissions during this time is via email. Phone calls weekdays during business hours are also welcome. Thank for your understanding.
