Welcome to UMassD

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.


UMass Dartmouth has an online Orientation program that will prepare you to enter our community. You will be provided access to this Orientation once you have submitted all your paperwork and have been registered for classes.

What is an Enrollment and Deposit Waiver form and why do Mount Ida students need to complete this?

The Enrollment and Deposit Waiver form provides UMass Dartmouth with information that allows us to register students for classes and develop an appropriate financial aid package. If students do not submit this form, we are unable to register you for Fall 2018 classes or to review your FAFSA form.


Do I have to pay for a UMassD online courses or is it part of the $13,600 tuition?

If students are completing their undergraduate degree completely online, the cost for each 3-credit course is at the most $1,344.

If students wish to take online courses during the summer or winter session, this is not covered in the guarantee of $13,600. UMass Dartmouth does not allow full-time students to replace on-campus courses with online courses during the fall and spring semesters. Should a student wish to add an online course to their courseload, it is the additional expense of a 3-credit online course.

If I know what courses I need to complete my degree, can I just register for UMassD online courses.

Every Mount Ida student who wishes to complete their degree at UMassD must work with a College representative to ensure that you take the appropriate courses. This may mean that you can register for summer courses to complete your degree, but your UMassD advisor will connect you with the Online & Continuing Education department if appropriate.
