Admission Criteria

We want to know you as an individual.

We don't evaluate your application based solely on your GPA and test scores. We take into consideration your background, experiences, and strengths demonstrated in the sum of your application materials. We encourage you to share with us who you are, as an individual and why you believe Endicott is the right fit for you through your essay, recommendations, resume and as you meet our admission team on campus. These are all opportunities for you to put their best foot forward in introducing yourself to the Endicott Community.

What are your admission requirements?

When considering candidates for admission, the Admission Review Committee looks at the entire individual. The Committee will review all of the application materials, while focusing on the academic credentials. Ultimately we believe your academic success here is best predicted by your previous academic work. The Committee utilizes a re-calculated GPA based upon the five major subject areas (English, Math, Science, Social Sciences and Foreign Languages) and adds extra weight for upper-level curriculum in our evaluation process. In addition to the GPA, the Committee looks for trends on the transcript and looks favorably on those have challenged themselves with their curriculum choices particularly in the junior and senior years within the context of coursework available at your secondary school.

Students enrolling to the College for the Class of 2023 have an average GPA of 3.4 (keep in mind this is an average, students are offered admission with above and below this GPA) and those who submitted test scores had an average of 1170 SAT or 23 ACT. Endicott is a test-optional institution, meaning you do not have to submit test scores to apply for admission to most academic programs. It is encouraged you submit your scores if you think it is an accurate reflection of your academic capabilities. If you are applying to the Nursing, Education (all licensure programs) or Athletic Training programs you must submit either the SAT or ACT.

In addition to the general college recommendations for admission, the Nursing program requires a 3.0 GPA* minimally from high school. Test scores (either SAT or ACT) are required for admission to the Nursing program. The minimum requirement is a 1050 SAT or 21 ACT, however the middle 50% of students accepted to the program were between a 1170 – 1270 SAT (1230 SAT average or 26 ACT average).  

* GPA is a recalculated weighted grade point average, based on a 4.0 grading scale.

What do you look for in applicants?

There are many facets of your application that are important to the Admission Committee and while the academic credentials will carry the most weight throughout the process, we are looking for students who will be outstanding citizens of the Endicott community. Your potential for contributing to our community will be assessed by your involvement within your secondary school and your community, so it is important to highlight your extra-curricular accomplishments within your application. Should Endicott clearly be your first choice college, we suggest you notify us of this at some point within the admission process (i.e. campus visits, essay, letters or emails).

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. Endicott demonstrates a commitment to enrolling students from a wide geographic range as well as from all ethnic and racial heritages.
