Non-Rollins Programs

Learn more about non-Rollins international study programs.

Overview

We encourage Rollins students to look at the Rollins Approved Semester and Summer Programs first, since those are the programs we have reviewed, selected and even developed. However, Rollins students are allowed to participate on programs through other institutions and study abroad providers, as long as they understand the following policies and obtain the appropriate approvals before going abroad.

  1. Transfer of credits is not guaranteed on a non-Rollins program—students must obtain approvals from Student Records and from the relevant departments if they hope to fulfill specific requirements. Credits will be processed as transfer credits. Please go to Academic Policies for full details and procedures.
  2. Financial Aid and institutional scholarships cannot be applied to a non-Rollins program.
  3. Students must still apply through International Programs.
  4. Students participating in a non-Rollins semester program must take a leave of absence from Rollins—International Programs will assist students in processing the necessary paperwork.
  5. Students will pay all costs directly to the program sponsor or provider; however, students are required to pay a non-refundable $550 administrative and transfer credit fee for a semester program and a non-refundable $75 administrative fee for a summer program. Payments will be posted to your Student Account Services account.
  6. International Programs provides advising, basic pre-departure support, and, in addition, will cover emergency and medical insurance for students participating on a non-Rollins program upon request.
  7. Costs vary widely so research carefully to make sure you understand all the costs associated with a program—what is included in program fees and tuition, and what additional costs you may be responsible for.
  8. You must attend a required advising session (30 mins) as part of the application process for a non-Rollins semester program. Please email Mary Robinson to schedule an appointment. Walk-in advising is for informational purposes only. Important: In order to have your required advising appointment, you must have already started your application in RIPA.
  9. NOTE that students are not allowed to take a leave of absence and participate in a Rollins Approved Program directly. Those programs are only available through Rollins International Programs.
