    • Test Scores (optional). Submission of SAT or ACT scores is optional with the exception of applicants for all secondary education teacher licensure, athletic training, early childhood education, elementary education, and nursing programs.
    • 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.
    • Prior to your enrollment at Endicott, be sure to send your official final high school transcript.
  • Additional Materials
    • Submit a letter of recommendation from a guidance counselor and/or teacher.
    • Resume (optional). You may submit a resume highlighting your leadership, extracurricular and athletic activities, work experience, and other secondary school accomplishments.
