We may continue to accept applications thereafter on a space-available basis; however some programs reach capacity early in the application cycle.

The College recognizes that such students enrich the entire campus community with their diverse cultural backgrounds.
We encourage all students to visit our campus and meet with a member of the Admission Staff. Interviews are not required. Additionally, Endicott's International Alumni Ambassadors Program allows prospective students to connect with alumni from various countries around the world!

Internationally educated applicants for admission whose educational documents are in a foreign language are required to have their credentials translated into English by an official from the secondary school. Endicott reserves the right to require that internationally educated applicants have their credentials evaluated by an approved external agency. This agency will certify the validity of the documents and determine if and how the potential transfer credits apply within the United States educational system.
If you are admitted to the College, you may indicate your intention to enroll by making an enrollment and continuation deposit of $500 in United States currency by May 1st. You will then be sent an invoice for tuition, room and board, and fees for the Fall semester. Upon receipt of this payment, the I-20 form necessary for obtaining a student visa will be mailed to you, along with instructions for securing a visa and information regarding your arrival to Endicott. For Spring semester entrants, an invoice will be sent with the offer of admission. Once payment is received, an electronic notification will be submitted to the relevant U.S. authorities and a paper copy of an I-20 form will be sent to you.
Prior to your enrollment at Endicott, your official FINAL secondary school transcript is required.
