Continuing education student admission

Mount Ida College can help you reach your goals – whether you’re a current college student looking to pick up a few more credits over the summer, a working adult from the Boston area looking to switch careers or add new skills or a local senior interested in learning something new.


Through a variety of continuing education programs, we carry on our legacy of career-focused academic options and professional training for students of all ages and backgrounds. You can choose to take classes online or on our campus in Newton, Massachusetts. Our continuing education programs include:

  • Summer classes at reduced tuition rates – variety of six- or eight-week courses in applied sciences, business, design and social sciences and humanities
  • Continuing education certificate programs for professionals in dental, education and funeral services professionals
  • Senior audit classes – affordable, non-credit learning for local seniors, age 62 and over

Mount Ida’s continuing education programs are open to the public, so you do not need to apply for traditional admissions. Never fear! Our friendly continuing education staff can answer any questions and help you choose and sign up for classes.
