CENTER FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING
Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), located in the Diane M. Halle Library, provides a wide range of services to all students seeking a successful academic experience. Through a combination of individualized tutoring, advising, and professional learning consultation services, as well as licensure preparation courses, accommodations for people with disabilities, and the first year EC 101: Endicott Transitions course, CTL encourages students to participate actively in their learning through an understanding of the skills, strategies and techniques needed to achieve their academic goals.
Programs are offered on an individual or group basis, and include:
- Advising Services Center (ASC)
Free, one-on-one appointments designed to introduce students to the tools, forms, and procedures for registering for classes, changing majors, adding minors or concentrations, adding/dropping/withdrawing from classes, fulfilling internship requirements, and preparing for meetings with their academic advisers.
- Disability Services
Endicott College provides reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with a documented disability as stated by law. The accommodations allow a qualified individual an equal opportunity to obtain the same benefit or privileges as those available to a similarly situated individual without a disability. Students requesting accommodation must self-identify and provide appropriate documentation of their disability. Eligibility for reasonable and appropriate disability accommodations will be determined on an individual basis.
- EC101: Endicott Transitions
Part of the First Year Experience (FYE) at Endicott, this one-credit course addresses the interests and concerns of incoming students and provides strategies for success in an academic community.

These intensive laboratories, offered throughout the academic year, help prepare students to pass the Massachusetts Tests of Educator Licensure (MTEL) examinations required for elementary, early childhood, secondary education, physical education, and special needs licensure.
