Checklist and Procedures
Endicott demonstrates a commitment to enrolling students from a wide geographic range as well as from all ethnic and racial heritages. When considering candidates for admission, the Admission Review Committee looks at the entire individual. In addition to reviewing the application and the student essay, the Committee concentrates on a student's academic record, recommendations, extra-curricular activities, and test scores.
We welcome applications without regard to race, religion, color, disability, national or ethnic origin, age, sex, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, political belief, or prior military status. We give additional consideration for admission to applicants who possess unusual strengths or accomplishments.
Freshmen students - February 15; Transfer and International students - March 15
All students - December 15
We are pleased that you are interested in completing the application to Endicott. This section of the web page will provide you with a checklist of materials needed. Please review the following to make sure your application is complete:
Please submit a completed Endicott College Application for Admission accompanied by a $50 non-refundable application fee payable to Endicott College. Students who submit their application online may submit the application fee online using a major credit card.
Arrange to have the following information sent along with your application or under separate cover:
- A response to either essay statement located on our Application for Admission (the essay should be submitted electronically with the online application).
- An official transcript of your high school or secondary school record including senior year first quarter/marking period grades. We ask that you have your guidance counselor or principal forward this information directly to the Office of Admission. Applicants that have not graduated from high school must submit a GED certificate issued by their state Department of Education.
- One letter of recommendation from your guidance counselor and/or teacher.
- Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) or American College Test (ACT) scores. The College requests that test scores be sent directly from ETS (code 3369) or ACT (code 1824). **There may be a delay in recording test scores if you choose not to provide your social security number to the testing service. Please notify our office so that we can verify your scores manually.
Checklist for Transfer and International Students:
All students majoring in one of the visual arts and design programs are required to submit a portfolio of their work for review by the School of Visual and Performing Arts. The portfolio evaluation augments the Application for Admission. The portfolio should include the following three items:
- 20 samples of the candidate's artwork as jpgs on a CD (do not send originals). Examples in various media are encouraged, such as drawing, ceramics, photography, drafting or graphics, rather than a concentration of images in one medium or discipline.
- One application-specific portfolio assignment. Choose one of the following:
- The Center of the Universe, in any medium, or
- Self-portrait in any medium.
We encourage creativity in your interpretation of this assignment and anticipate your unique response.
- Checklist description of artwork including medium, title, size, date, and software, if applicable.
Please note: your CD and materials will not be returned.
Send materials by January 15 to: Portfolio Review, School of Visual and Performing Arts, Endicott College, 376 Hale Street, Beverly, MA 01915. Upon receipt of the portfolio, the Dean, Department Chair, and appropriate faculty will review the work. The evaluation will then be sent to the Admission Office as a supplemental assessment tool.
We advise students who are applying for freshmen status to submit all application materials by the deadline of February 15 for Fall admission. We may continue to accept applications thereafter on a space-available basis; however some programs reach capacity early in the application cycle. The Admission Review Committee will not consider applications until ALL of the materials listed above have been received by the Office of Admission. Once the application is complete, we typically notify candidates by mail of an admission decision within seven to ten weeks. The deadline for Spring semester admission is December 15.
If you decide to change your program of study after admission is offered, you must request a change in writing to the Office of Admission. This request is necessary due to the limited number of positions available within each School of the College.
Prior to your enrollment at Endicott, your official FINAL high school transcript is required.
Transfer of AP Credits
The College participates in the Advanced Placement Program of the College Board. Course exemption and/or credit will be awarded to students presenting scores of 3 or higher on AP examinations except for Math and Science exams which require a minimum score of 4. The 2012 AP Credit Matrix is available on the Registrar's web page www.endicott.edu/registrar. Students should request that their scores be sent to the Office of Admission directly from the College Board (Code 3369). Once the scores have been evaluated, students will be notified of any advanced standing awarded.
