Applying for a Bachelor's Degree
We're glad you're here, and that you're ready to apply for your bachelor degree from Rollins College. We've tried to make the process as straightforward as possible, and it's important to us that we get to know you. This is a big decision, and we want to make sure we're the right fit for you, and that you're the right fit for us.
Applicants must submit the following information:
A completed Application for Undergraduate Admission. Please note that the application currently cannot be saved, so please put aside about 20 minutes to complete it.
Official transcripts of your academic work from each college or university that you have attended, regardless of whether or not coursework from one institution is listed on another school transcript. If you haven't attended college, or you have less than 60 credit hours earned, please send your high school transcripts as well. Transcripts should be sent to: Hamilton Holt School, 1000 Holt Avenue - 2725, Winter Park, FL, 32789.
- Essay Questions
Please answer the following questions and submit via a Word or other computer document:
1. Why are you considering Rollins Evening?
2. What do you think you, as a student, could add to the Rollins community?
3. Please write a brief essay (between 300 and 500 words) on the following topic: What do you think is the most significant invention or technology ever developed and why do you think so? Discuss how this invention/technology has affected your life.
- Letter of Appeal
A 2.5 cumulative grade-point average (GPA) is required for admission into the Holt School. We do recognize that there are often extenuating circumstances for some students, so we do allow for an appeals process. A student with less than a 2.5 GPA may submit a letter of appeal that explains the circumstances of his or her previous academic attempts to be considered with the application.
- College Official's Report
All transfer students must submit a College Official's Report to the last academic institution they were enrolled. Your last institution will complete the remainder of the document and return it to our office.
Once your application and essay questions are submitted and all transcripts are received, you'll schedule a 20-30 minute interview with members of the admission and student services team. This is an opportunity for you to get to know the team better, and for us to get to know you as a person (not just a GPA).
A $40 application fee is required as part of the application process to the Holt School. This fee may be waived if a student attends an information session or schedules and attends an appointment with the admission team.
- Other Submissions
While these are the required pieces for every application, you may submit other materials as well if you feel it will help give us a better picture of your qualifications and motivations. These include letters of recommendations, personal referrals, and other documentation.
- Students who have attended non-English speaking schools should submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A score of at least 550 (paper test) or 213 (computer test) is required on the TOEFL for admission.
- Students who are not American citizens must demonstrate appropriate permanent resident or visa status. Only full-time student status qualifies students for an F1 Visa.
- Any student that submits a foreign transcript is responsible for having these transcripts sent through an evaluation service for translation. Josef Silny and Associates, Inc. and WES may be used for evaluation services.
