UMass Dartmouth will be accepting former Mount Ida students until September 1. If you have been exploring your options and would like to look at UMass Dartmouth again, we will be happy to help you make the transition.

  • Complete the “Enrollment and Deposit Waiver Form,” so we can register you for classes; and a UMassD housing representative will reach out to you if you check off that you need on-campus housing.
  • Complete the FERPA form so we can access your information.
  • Add the UMass Dartmouth school code to your FAFSA. Our school code is 002210. This will allow the Department of Education to send us your information so we can begin reviewing you for financial aid.
