Frequently Asked Questions
I just got my acceptance letter. Now what?
Congratulations on your acceptance to Rollins! Once you’ve decided that Rollins is right for you, you will need to submit the $500 deposit in your applicant portal to secure your spot in the incoming class.
After you submit your deposit and officially sign on to attend Rollins, your admission counselor will work with you directly to complete the new student process. They’ll sign you up for orientation, get you set up in FoxLink, our student account and information portal, and work with our financial aid department to determine what you qualify for in terms of aid.
When is the deadline to submit my deposit?
If you applied through the Early Decision program, the deadline is January 15 for the first round and March 1 for the second round. If you applied the Regular Decision program, the national deadline is May 1.
Is my deposit refundable?
If you applied as an Early Decision applicant, your deposit is non-refundable. If you applied as a Regular Decision applicant, your deposit is refundable through May 1.
When can I expect my financial aid letter?
You’ll receive the letter notifying you of your aid qualifications no more than two weeks after you submit your deposit, provided you submitted the FAFSA before your acceptance. If you haven’t submitted the FAFSA yet, you should do so immediately to begin the financial aid process.
What other perks do I get as an admitted student?
Each spring we host Experience Rollins, a series of open houses designed exclusively for admitted students, where you and your family can explore campus and connect with our community. We also host receptions for admitted students around the country.
When will I get my FoxLink login?
Most accepted students get their FoxLink login and Rollins email address in February. If you submit your deposit after February, you’ll get your credentials about five business days after you make your deposit.
If I decide to go to Rollins, am I required to live on campus as a first-year student?
Our living-learning communities are a vital part of the Rollins experience, and we strongly encourage all first year students live on campus to fully embrace our campus culture. Most students live on campus for their first three years. However, if you live within a commutable distance (50 miles), you may live off campus.
Can I pick my roommate? What about my residence hall?
Once you’re accepted to Rollins, we suggest you start networking with other admitted students via one of our many social media channels. You can also meet other students through the Experience Rollins open house. If you meet someone you click with, let us know and we’ll do our best to set you up as roommates. Residence halls are assigned based on class standing and RCC cohorts.
If I want to be considered for the 3/2 Accelerated Management Program (AMP), but I didn’t indicate that on my application, can I still apply?
Yes. Just let your admission counselor know you’re interested.
