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.

All students applying to Creative Arts Therapy, Studio Art, Graphic Design, Photography, or Interior De are required to submit a portfolio of their artwork for review by the School of Art and Design.
