Admitted Students

Welcome Class of 2022

Congratulations and welcome to Mount Ida College! Here is a checklist of your next steps.

Have general questions? Feel free to e-mail the Office of Admissions at admissions@mountida.edu or call (617) 928-4553.

Submit Your Tuition Deposit

We require all admitted students to reserve their spot at the College with a $300 tuition deposit. The deposit is not a fee – it will be deducted from your tuition, and is refundable up until May 31. You may pay your enrollment or housing deposit online. Please note that many of the following steps cannot be completed without depositing.

RSVP for Admitted Student Day

Admitted Student Day is a fun experience where you will receive a program-specific overview of your academic major. It’s also an opportunity for you to meet college faculty, learn more about financial aid, understand your housing options, and explore all of the various resources and programs that are going to be available to you as a student.

Financial Aid

Applying for financial aid? FAFSA for students enrolling in Fall 2018 opens on October 1st.  Students can apply online here. Please make sure you contact the Office of Student Financial Services at either 617-928-4785 or finaid@mountida.edu with any questions.

Activate Your Technology Account (Email and MiWeb)

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 within a week 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.

Join Our Facebook Group

We invite all newly admitted students for Fall 2018 to join our new student Facebook group, where you can get to know other new Mount Ida students, and ask questions.

Housing

Housing applications will not be available until later in the spring. If you are planning to live on campus, you will need to fill out a housing application and select roommate preferences. You will need to submit the deposit and have your technology account activated before starting this process. Once this is done, you will be able to complete the form through MIWeb MIWeb. Please note that we will do our best to accommodate your housing preferences, but Mount Ida College does not guarantee housing for students.

Portfolio Submissions

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

Health Forms

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. More details will be available in the spring. 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.

Health Insurance Waiver

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. More information will be available in the spring. Questions can be directed to Student Health Services at 617-928-4599 or health@mountida.edu.

Transfer Student Conduct Evaluation Form

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. For contact information for schools from where we frequently receive transfer students, please click here. If you have questions, please contact your admissions counselor.

Student Achievement Program (SAP)

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.
