Hello from all of us in the Perkins OEM (Office of Enrollment Management)!

We want to stay closely connected with you amid the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and let you know that we have strengthened our accessibility so that you can continue to receive the information you need seamlessly and without delay. Because the priority for our SMU community is good health and safety for all, including our families, we are providing services virtually across campus. For the foreseeable future, classes will be held online, and visits to campus and in-person meetings have been restricted.

As your Enrollment Management team, our commitment to you does not change. Our promise is to continue our engagement by offering opportunities to meet with our associates by telephone or Zoom meetings. Of course, we will respond immediately to your emails, as well.

You may schedule Zoom meetings with any one of our team members by emailing or calling by phone:
