We provide flexibility to thrive.

Finishing your degree at Rollins will be one of your life’s most important milestones, but from work to family, we know it’s just one of the priorities you’re juggling. From classes scheduled around work to a consolidated calendar, we’ve baked flexibility into every aspect of our programs, which are specifically designed for adult learners with busy lives. Our classes are conveniently timed to suit your schedule and only meet once per week. We also offer part- and full-time tracks, which allow you to earn your degree at your own pace.

We guarantee admission.

Rollins accepts most college-level credit earned at accredited institutions, and we don’t have limited-access majors, increasing transfer credits that apply directly to your major requirements. You are guaranteed admission to Rollins’ Professional Advancement programs with a minimum 2.8 cumulative GPA, and we’ll even help create an individualized course plan based on your transfer credits and completion timeline. From our guaranteed admission policy to a custom-built pathway to graduation, we’re committed to helping you finish stronger.

Our personalized approach.

Our personalized learning environment is designed to maximize engagement and give you the expert support you need to thrive in our classrooms and in your new career. With an average class size of just 14, you’ll find no overflowing auditoriums, boring lectures, or uninspired professors on America’s most beautiful campus. It’s about application over memorization, mentoring over lecturing, and hands-on research over data downloading.

Affordability matters.

Each year, Rollins Professional Advancement students tap into nearly $4 million in scholarships and financial aid. Tuition for Rollins’ Professional Advancement programs is comparable to that of Valencia College, Seminole State College, and the University of Central Florida, and we offer ample scholarships and financial aid to help make your dream of finishing your degree a reality.
