Residency Requirements

UMass Amherst, UMass Dartmouth, and UMass Lowell have waived their 45-credit residency requirement for Mount Ida students.

UMass Boston has a 30-credit requirement it is going to retain. Since 30 credits are possible to complete in a single year of full-time enrollment, it should be possible from a credit perspective for any Mount Ida student to graduate in a year.

Students may wish to take particular note of the fact that, due to its residency requirement, UMass Boston may not be an appropriate campus for MIC students who need fewer than 30 credits to complete their degree.
