Freshman Admission Application

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

If you are a high school student, you may apply by submitting the following:.


Application – Submit either our own online application, add us to the Common Application, or print and mail the application. There is NO application fee for any option.


An official transcript from your high school (or a copy of your GED or other equivalency credential).


We strongly recommend an essay describing why you would be a good fit for Mount Ida College. We also accept Common Application essays in place of our essay.


We strongly recommend applicants submit at least one letter of recommendation.


A portfolio submission is required for students applying for some programs. You can find instructions, requirements, and submit your portfolio by clicking below. Please note that we encourage students to send transcripts and other application documents as soon as possible as applicants who complete the rest of their admissions file can be conditionally admitted pending review of their portfolio.

Test Optional Policy

Mount Ida College is test optional for most of our programs, meaning we do not require SAT or ACT scores; however there are several exceptions. Students applying for medical, dental, pharmacy, or veterinary programs need to provide either SAT or ACT scores.
