Ways to Apply


Application Options

  • Test Score Waived Option (TSWO)

The Test Score Waived Option allows applicants to apply without their standardized test scores. You'll need to submit a personal representation telling us about yourself. You may submit this personal representation as a 1-minute YouTube video or a PowerPoint presentation of 6-8 slides. Please email your YouTube video link or your PowerPoint presentation to tswo@rollins.edu. Be sure to include your name and addess and/or high school so we can identify you.

  • 3/2 Accelerated Management Program (AMP)

The 3/2 Accelerated Management Program at Rollins combines a four-year Bachelor of Arts (BA) and a two-year Master of Business Administration (MBA) into a five-year program. The first three years are spent working on the student's undergraduate degree while the final two years are completed in the Early Advantage MBA Program (EAMBA) at the Crummer Graduate School of Business.


Additional Admission Requirements

Along with the regular admission requirements at Rollins, international students must meet additional requirements.

If your native language is not English or you are in a school where English is not the primary language, you must demonstrate proficiency in English through a certified test or program. A score of 550 (PBT), 213 (CBT), 80 (IBT) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or a 6.5 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or higher indicate adequate proficiency.

Any student that submits a foreign college/university transcript is responsible for having these transcripts sent through an evaluation service for translation.  Josef Silny and Associates, Inc. and WES are the ones that Rollins uses for evaluation services.

Advanced Standing Credit

Credit is awarded for Advanced Placement Exams, International Baccalaureate programs, or dual enrollment courses. A score of 4 or 5 on an Advance Placement Exam is worth one elective course credit.

  • If you are an International Baccalaureate graduate, you will receive credit based on the following criteria:
  • One year (32 semester hours) for students with an IB diploma and a score of 30 or better.
  • Eight semester hours for each higher level score of 5 or better and four semester hours for each score of 4 or better to a maximum of 24 semester hours for students with or without an IB diploma and a score of less than 30.
  • General education requirement credit and advanced placement in major courses will be granted as appropriate, subject to approval.
    Honors Degree Program

Designed for students with exceptional abilities, the Honors Degree program admits first-year students with a superior record of academic achievement and leads to a distinct and separate undergraduate degree-Artium Baccalaureus Honoris-the Honors Bachelor of Arts Degree. First-year accepted students chosen for initiation into the Honors Degree Program receive notification from the Director of the Honors Program shortly after learning of their acceptance to Rollins.

Honors Students complete a core of interdisciplinary courses designed to provide an integrated understanding of the liberal arts. A series of four team-taught seminars during their first and second years introduces students to the various methods of inquiry in a liberal education. Honors seminars in the third and fourth years support significant independent research projects that represent the culmination of students' Honors experience at Rollins. More information about the Honors Degree Program is available on the Honors website.
