International Applicants for Undergraduate Admission

Endicott College welcomes and encourages applicants from around the world. International applicants must request that an official academic transcript confirming a secondary school diploma equivalent to a U.S. high school diploma be sent directly from the secondary school. Educational documents from outside the U.S. must be accompanied by a certified English translation, if deemed necessary.

All transcripts and translations of transcripts must be official originals and must show courses completed, grades received, grading scale, duration of study, degree or diploma received, and the date conferred. Endicott College reserves the right to request verification of the credentials by an external agency. International applicants must submit current TOEFL scores when their native language is not English or when their high school transcript and diploma are not from an institution where English is the language of instruction. Once students have been admitted as degree candidates, Endicott College will send detailed instructions about the process for acquiring an Endicott-sponsored student visa.

 

Ph.D in Applied Behavioral Analysis Program

Admission to the program is based upon a two-step process. Students must first apply to and be accepted as qualified applicants by the Endicott College Van Loan School and the Institute for Behavioral Studies. The second step requires applicants to indicate their first, second, and third choices for their Doctoral Advisor, based in part on the teaching and research interests of the individual faculty. For those students accepted as qualified applicants to the Doctoral program, faculty will review their dossier in the order of the applicants stated preferences. The three current full-time doctoral level faculty may choose to admit up to three new doctoral students per year, to a maximum of nine new students per year. This number will be raised to twelve with the hiring of a fourth member of the faculty, who will serve as the full-time Director of Doctoral Programs. Additional students will only be admitted once current students either graduate, withdraw from the program, or their tenure has expired. Information regarding the number of expected openings in the program for the upcoming year, the area of academic focus of the individual faculty, etc., will be posted annually on the Institute for Behavioral Studies website.

Individuals wishing to be considered for admission to the Doctoral Program in Behavior Analysis offered through the Institute for Behavioral Studies at Endicott College should begin the process by completing the on-line application.

Once this process has been completed, the prospective student should submit the following:

• Complete, official transcripts from all previous, accredited post-secondary education sent directly from the institution.

• Three letters of recommendation. An academic respondent holding an earned Ph.D. in Behavior Analysis or related field, who can attest to the applicant’s ability to complete doctoral study successfully must author at least one letter of recommendation.

• An original 6-10 page Personal Statement, that responds to these questions:

  - What relevant knowledge, skills, experiences bring you to this point of considering doctoral study?

  - In what ways will doctoral study support your academic, professional and/or personal goals?

  - What would be your ideal apprenticeship and why?

• Official copy of scores from the Graduate Record Exam (GRE).
