You may send in a check by mail to The Office of Undergraduate Admission, 300 The Fenway, Boston, MA 02115, or—even better—deposit through our secure online deposit form.
Orientation & Registration
At orientation, you will meet with an academic advisor to register for classes, meet other new and incoming students, and attend important information sessions that will help ensure your success at Simmons. (Orientation is held in the fall for fall-entering students, and in January for spring-entering students.)
Your advisor will help you choose appropriate classes that fulfill the required courses for a Simmons degree and your intended major.
