When considering candidates for admission, the Endicott Admission Review Committee looks at the entire individual. In addition to reviewing the application and student essay, the Committee concentrates on the student’s academic record, personal recommendation(s), extra-curricular activities, and test scores. Additional consideration for admission is given 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. 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.
Fall Admission: Freshmen students - February 15; Transfer and International students - March 15
Spring Admission: All students - December 15
We may continue to accept applications thereafter on a space-available basis; however some programs reach capacity early in the application cycle.
All applications should be printed or typed and signed and dated. Students who submit an application online using the Endicott College website (www.endicott.edu) must print, sign, and submit the Application Signature Page. All completed applications/signature pages should be accompanied by a non-refundable application fee of $40.
Arrange to have the following information sent along with your application or under separate cover:
- An official transcript of your high school or secondary school record including senior year first quarter grades
- One letter of recommendation from your guidance counselor and/or teacher
- SAT or ACT test scores
Transfer students should send the materials listed above as well as official transcripts from all colleges attended and course descriptions or college catalogs for credit evaluation.
International students should submit the materials listed above as well as official results of Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) test scores, and a declaration of finances indicating the applicant’s or a sponsor’s ability to pay the costs required to attend college in the United States. This information is required by the United States government and will be held in the strictest confidence. SAT or ACT test scores are recommended, but not required.
Students applying as Art and Design Majors are encouraged to submit portfolios of their artwork for review by the School of Art and Design. Students who wish to have their artwork evaluated along with their applications should do the following:
- Send twelve to twenty (12-20) samples of your artwork in either 35mm slides or on a CD (DO NOT send originals). If sending slides, insert them into a plastic slide sheet; DO NOT send slides in a box or loose in an envelope. Please include a description of the artwork, such as medium, title, size, date, and software used. Write a one-page statement relating why you want to study art and design at Endicott; what led to your interest in art; and which area you are interested in studying: Creative Arts Therapy, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Photography, or Studio Art.
- Enclose a statement releasing the College of liability in the event the work is lost.
- Provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the return of your slides or CD.
- Optional: Submit an application-specific creative assignment that addresses The Center of the Universe. It will be used to assess your creative thinking and problem solving abilities.
- Send materials by January 15 to the Dean of the School of Art and Design, Endicott College, 376 Hale Street, Beverly, MA 01915.
Upon receipt of the portfolio, the Dean, Department Chair, and appropriate faculty will review the work. The evaluation will then be sent to the Admission Office as a supplemental assessment tool.
