Senior audit program

It’s an exciting time to join our community at Mount Ida College – and we encourage you to do so. We recognize the importance of lifelong learning whether you’re a Mustang alumni or local resident from Newton or Needham. If you’re 62 or older, you may audit and participate in our daytime classes for a nominal fee on space-available, non-credit basis.


Why should I consider auditing?

Our Senior Citizen Audit program engages you in a wide array of intellectually stimulating and career focused courses. As a senior auditor, you’ll experience the joys of being a student, while making new friends in our college community. Sign up today to share your point of view and embrace our diversity. Now is the time to become a Mustang and learn about the latest industry trends in Applied Forensic Science, Fashion Design, Psychology, Sport Management, and a wide variety of other courses. 

How much does auditing cost?

We’re happy to help you with determining your eligibility for enrollment. The audit fee is waived if you are a resident of Newton or Needham. For our senior neighbors in other nearby communities, you can also join us for an audit fee of $100. As a senior auditor, you will be responsible for your own course prerequisites, course materials, books and for the payment of all appropriate fees.

We are excited to welcome you – or welcome you back – to our vibrant campus as you expand your horizons. Please visit the Office of Continuing Education or call (617) 928-4624 for more details.
