Endicott College has shown growth in specific categories of this year’s U.S. News & World Report college rankings. Endicott’s standing in several categories has increased from last year’s rankings, showcasing the improvement in student-focused outcomes.

The College has increased its graduation rate (4-year average) from 75 to 76%. Additionally, there has been an increase in the number of classes with fewer than 20 students, from 68 to 69%. The retention rate (4-year average) has also increased from 84 to 85%. 
“Here at Endicott, it is important to us to focus on our student outcomes,” said President Steven R. DiSalvo, Ph.D. “We are thrilled with these increases and are excited to see them continue to grow.”
The core of the Endicott College experience—our internship and career program—continues to be recognized as a national leader ranking in the “Programs to Look for - Internship” category. Additionally, Endicott achieved rankings across the following categories “Best Colleges for Veterans”; “Best Undergraduate Nursing Programs”; “Best Undergraduate Teaching”; “Best Value Schools”; and “Top Performers on Social Mobility.”
Endicott ranks number 28 in Regional Universities (North), down from 23 last year. 
“Our overall ranking is down slightly, but this is a result of six new institutions that were added to our ranking category this year,” said Donny Femino, Assistant Vice President, Research and Planning at Endicott College.
“We’ve already seen improvements in our metrics that will go towards next year’s rankings as we continue our climb toward the top 20,” he added.
