We require all admitted students to reserve their spot at the College with a tuition deposit ($300 total deposit if you will be living on campus; or just a $200 total deposit if you will be commuting). The deposit is not a fee – it will be deducted from your tuition, and is refundable up until May 1. You may pay your enrollment or housing deposit online here.


You can activate your technology account simply by logging into the official Mount Ida College email and MIWeb service. Login information will be sent directly to you from Mount Ida Technology Services in the spring, after you submit the deposit. Once you’ve activated your account, please visit the New Student tab in MIWeb for additional helpful information and resources throughout the year.


If you are planning to live on campus, you will need to fill out a residential application and select roommate preferences. You will need to submit the deposit and have your technology account activated before starting this process. Once we receive the deposit, you will be able to complete the housing form through MIWeb.


Portfolio submissions are required for majors within the School of Design (excluding Fashion Industry Marketing and Management). If you have not submitted your portfolio, you may do so here. Please make sure you contact the Office of Admissions with any questions you may have.


Incoming students are required to have the Immunization Record and Student Health Information and Consent Form completed and returned to Student Health Services in advance of enrolling in courses. You can find information about all health information requirements and instructions for submitting by clicking here. If you have questions about the requirements or about the Patient Portal, please contact Student Health Services at 617-928-4599 or health@mountida.edu.


All full-time and three-quarter-time students in Massachusetts are required to be enrolled in a qualifying health insurance plan. Mount Ida College automatically enrolls all students. If a student wishes to stay on their current health insurance plan, they must waive the Mount Ida policy before enrolling. To do so, please continue to our student health insurance page, thoroughly review the information, and proceed to the appropriate links. Directions will also be provided within your MIWeb portal, and questions can be directed to Student Health Services at 617-928-4599 or health@mountida.edu.


Applying for financial aid? Starting October 1, 2016 students can apply online here. Please make sure you contact the Office of Student Financial Services with any questions.


The Student Achievement Program (SAP) is a fee-for-service academic support program that offers students the opportunity to develop essential skills to support successful learning. Students who join SAP have an assigned learning specialist who works with them one-on-one and in small groups to build on strengths, identify strategies, and establish a clear pathway to achievement in their major field of study. To learn more about SAP, please click here.


Connect with your soon-to-be classmates! You can find the Facebook group for our Class of 2021 here. In addition, we have the Mount Ida Class of 2021 Parent Facebook group, which is a great way for parents to connect.


Before enrolling, all transfer students (students transferring to Mount Ida College from another college/university) are required to submit a Transfer Applicant Conduct History Evaluation. You will need to enter your information, sign, then submit the form to your previous institution(s), who will complete the form and return it to Mount Ida College. This will need to be done for each college/university attended within the last 7 years.
