The Test Score Waived Option (TSWO) allows applicants to apply without their standardized test scores. However, the following additional materials are required:
A representation of your strengths, talents, or interests—anything that helps us better understand who you are and your potential to contribute to the Rollins community. Your representation is limited only by your imagination and creativity. Examples of submissions from past applicants include the following: YouTube videos, DVDs or slide shows of their athletic or artistic talents; power points or scrapbooks of their backgrounds, interests or accomplishments; music or poetry they composed. It is very important that your representation is prepared specifically for your Rollins admission application and is not something you used for another purpose. Please note that your representation will not be returned.
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.
Students whose first choice is Rollins are encouraged to apply Early Decision. Early Decision is a binding program, and accepted students are expected to enroll. You must complete and return the Early Decision Agreement Form to be considered for Early Decision. Advantages of Early Decision include priority consideration for admission and academic scholarships, and an early financial aid estimate for financial aid applicants.
The final admission application deadline. Applications received after this date are considered on a space-available basis.
*The application deadline is extended until March 15 for international students, but students may also apply for either Early Decision round.

Rollins College Common Application Supplement—for applicants using the Common Application
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. Grades of C or better on most British GCE A-Level exams are worth two course credits each, and up to eight course credits may be awarded for the German Abitur.
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-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.
