NEWTON, Mass. - A door closed for hundreds of Mount Ida College students recently when the Newton, Mass., school announced it would close at the end of its spring semester. The school is transitioning students into other schools as efficiently as possible but many programs are full, inconveniently located, or incompatible schedule-wise. Mount Ida vet tech students, in particular, face an additional roadblock as The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, which is acquiring the Mount Ida campus, offers no program for them to transfer into. To the rescue is The Madison School of Healthcare at Ashworth College, an online vet tech program that has opened its doors for all Mount Ida transfer students.
