Fees and Charges for 2013-2014


Full-Time Students

A full-time student is defined as a student who is registered for 12 or more hours of credit per semester. As long as a student has a GPA of 2.0 or higher, he or she may take an additional course up to 18 credit hours at no additional cost. Students who take credit overloads in excess of 18 semester hours of academic credit will be charged a tuition surcharge at the rate of $870 per credit hour.

Tuition During the Full Semester Internship

The full semester internship is an integral component of the program of study at Endicott College and is the reason that most students select Endicott over other colleges. The internship experience provides the integration of theoretical learning in the classroom with real world application in the workplace. The full semester internship is essential to the senior academic experience, which includes career preparation and a culminating thesis project.

The internship, if successfully completed, carries 12 credit hours that are necessary to complete graduation requirements. Because this is a faculty supervised internship, which includes site visits and regular class assignments, as opposed to the non-credit bearing experiences offered at some institutions, the College charges published tuition fees during
that semester.

Part-Time Status

Students are permitted to enroll for up to 11 credit hours on a part-time basis. The tuition is $850 per credit hour. A student who has been accepted into the Nursing program as a full-time student may not change to part-time status.

Students with part-time status who register for 12 credits or more will be considered to have given notice of change to full-time status and will be billed accordingly.

Enrollment/Continuation Deposit

New full-time, day division students are required to pay a $500.00 Enrollment/Continuation Deposit by May 1 for Fall admission or by December 15 for Spring admission. This one-time deposit serves several purposes. For new accepted students, the deposit initially reserves a place at the College. It is non-refundable if the student fails to matriculate.

Once the student has matriculated at Endicott College, this non-interest bearing deposit will be fully refunded (less any outstanding financial obligations) upon the student’s graduation or official notification of withdrawal. Official notification of withdrawal must be made by May 1st if not returning for the subsequent fall semester and December 15th if not returning for the subsequent spring semester. Students who participate in room selection or register for classes for the subsequent semester are not eligible for the deposit refund. Official notification of withdrawal is done in writing and by exit interview with the Vice President for Special Projects and Ombudsperson. Notification after those dates will cause the deposit to be forfeited. An appeal of the forfeiture of the deposit may be made in writing to the Vice President of Finance. The deposit is also not refundable if the student participates in the room selection process and leaves residency without successfully completing the Change of Housing Status procedure as defined in the Endicott College Handbook for Students.

Application Fee

A $50 application fee is required at the time of application in order to process your application. This fee covers the expense involved in handling the applicant’s portfolio. It is not refundable, nor is it credited to tuition charges.

Student Health Insurance

Student health insurance coverage is mandatory in Massachusetts under the Universal Health Care Law. Endicott students must have accident/illness insurance coverage. The annual fee for this coverage for 2013-2014 is $1,395; it will be included in the July invoice.

If a student already has comparable coverage with another insurance plan, the student may waive the insurance coverage through Endicott. A waiver form will be available on-line and instructions are included with the July invoice. The insurance may only be waived through the completion of the on-line waiver form at

International students may not waive the student accident and sickness insurance unless they are covered by an embassy sponsored program. A copy of this program must be sent with the waiver form.

Graduation Fee

A graduation fee of $200 is assessed those students who qualify for Master, Bachelor, or Associate degrees from Endicott. This assessment covers a variety of student activities associated with Commencement, including: degree audit, preparation of diploma, cap and gown, yearbook, and graduation events and ceremonies.
