Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need in order to apply?
You’ll need to complete your application for admission and a personal statement. Before you apply, make sure you’ve filled out the FAFSA. We ask that you provide an official high school transcript and a secondary high school report form and a counselor recommendation. If you’re applying for Early Decision, you’ll need to fill out an additional form.
Can I submit additional letters of recommendation?
Yes. We accept recommendation letters from teachers, coaches, employers, etc. This is a good way for us to learn more about you but is in no way required.
What is Early Decision?
If you know that Rollins is where you want to be, Early Decision is a great option for taking advantage of key benefits related to your education. Here’s how it works. You submit your application by the November 15 deadline (or January 5 for Round 2) and indicate that you’d like to be considered for Early Decision on your application. If you’re accepted, we’ll notify you before the winter break.
Early Decision is binding, meaning you’ll be expected to withdraw all other college applications and enroll at Rollins upon approval.
If I apply for Early Decision but don’t receive enough financial aid, am I still bound to attend?
Almost all first-year students receive ample aid, but if for some reason you need to withdraw your commitment due to financial reasons, please contact our Dean of Admission to talk through your options.
Does Rollins prefer one type of application over another?
Nope. Apply in the way that feels right to you. All applications are reviewed equally.
Is there a separate application for the 3/2 Accelerated Management Program?
No, all you have to do is indicate your interest in the AMP on your application. If you’ve already submitted your application and would like to be considered, please contact your admission counselor.
Will Rollins look at my weighted or unweighted GPA?
We will unweight and calculate core academic courses when recalculating your GPA.
Does Rollins accept AP, IB, DE, and AICE credits?
Yes, we accept all standard accelerate and enrichment credits as long as basic requirements are met.
What if my test scores don’t come in by the Priority Scholarship deadline?
Go ahead and apply without your test scores. Once they come in, contact your counselor. We’ll still honor priority scholarship requests even if your test scores come in at a later date, as long as you get your application in before the deadline.
Do you accept students on a rolling basis?
No, we collect applications up until the deadline, and then we evaluate them after the window has closed.
I’m interested in applying for the Alfond Scholarship. When do I need to apply?
Students interested in the Alfond Scholarship need to apply by the Priority Scholarship deadline.
Do I need an ACT or SAT score to apply?
No. We’re a Test Optional Admission school, and there is no additional supplement needed to apply.
My counselor never received a request for a recommendation letter. What do I do?
Please reach out to our admission team. They’ll make sure the request gets to your counselor.
