Admission Criteria

We want to know you as an individual.

As the Admission Committee evaluates applications, the whole applicant is considered.

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.
