Master of Education Admission Requirements
Applications to graduate degree programs are evaluated by the Graduate School staff to determine a candidate’s potential in the program to which he or she is applying. Admission to a graduate program in Education requires a Bachelor degree, in any field, from an accredited college. To be considered for admission to graduate study, candidates must submit the following credentials:
• Application form and $50.00 application fee;
• Statement of professional goals;
• Official transcripts of all academic work;
• Two letters of recommendation;
• Official score on either the Miller Analogies Test or GRE; preferable 50th percentile or higher. Not required for T.I.E.S. and International Education.
• All students for whom English is not a first language must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL); 79 is minimum
score for iBT; 550 for pen and paper test
• Program candidates seeking Massachusetts Educator Licensure must submit evidence of passing scores on the Communication and Literacy Test
• Arts and Learning candidates only: include documentation of artistic involvement/skill, i.e. portfolio, performance history, or written statement
explaining artistic interest and involvement.
• An admission interview with the program dean/director is required of all candidates.
Endicott College welcomes and encourages applicants from around the world. An international applicant is required to hold a college or university degree equivalent to a four-year American baccalaureate degree. Educational documents in a foreign language are required to be translated into English. Applicants must verify the translations by including the original document and a notarized copy of the original. Endicott College reserves the right to request verification of the degree by an external agency. All transcripts must be official originals and must show courses completed, grades received, grading scale, duration of study, degree or diploma received, and the date conferred. In addition to the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), international applicants must submit current TOEFL scores when their native language is not English or when their baccalaureate is not from an institution where English is the language of instruction. Once students have been admitted as degree candidates, Endicott College will send detailed instructions about the process for acquiring an Endicott-sponsored student visa.
Transfer of Credits
At the time of matriculation, students may request transfer of not more than six graduate credits completed at other accredited institutions. Only courses relevant to the program of study in which a student has received a grade of “B” or better will be accepted. Courses completed more than five years prior to the student’s acceptance into his or her present program will not be considered for transfer credit.
