Application Instructions

Applicants must submit the following information:

  • Application
    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. You will be asked to respond to two out of the three short answer (50-100 words) questions listed below. We recommend you complete your responses in a document editor, then paste your response in to the application. 
    • Tell us about your academic journey. 
    • Why do you want to earn your bachelor’s degree and why have you chosen Rollins?
    • Please tell us about a person or a teacher who made a meaningful difference in your previous academic experience and why. 
  • Transcripts
    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.
  • 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. 
  • Interview
    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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS ONLY:
  • Candidates whose native language is not English are required to submit evidence of their English language ability. The following are accepted as evidence: an official score report from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a score of 550 or better (paper-based); 213 or better (computer-based); or, 80 or better (internet-based); or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with a score of 6.5 or better.
  • 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.
