Spring Admission Applicants

To assist students during the spring application process, all spring students are assigned to the Director of Spring Admission.

Springtime Start

Each year Rollins enrolls approximately 35 students in the spring class, both first-year and transfer.

Deadline

To be considered for the spring semester, you should submit all application materials by November 1. The review process for spring applications begins in early October. Once all application items have been received by the Admission office, your application will be evaluated and your decision letter will be mailed within two weeks to four weeks of your application becoming complete. Should you have questions about spring semester admission, you may contact the Director of Spring Admission at any time.

Admission to Rollins is highly selective. Many factors are considered in the admission process, including each candidate's academic record, talents, interests, and potential to contribute to both the Rollins communities.

First-Year Applicants

First-year applicants are considered students who do not have college experience after High School graduation or students who are transferring from another college or university with less than the equivalent of a full year—less than 30 semester credit hours.

Financial Aid

First-year spring students are eligible for academic scholarships based on a combination of SAT (Critical Reading and Math sections only) or ACT scores and academic performance in high school. Academic scholarships range from $15,000 to $20,000 per year and are renewable for each year at Rollins. Your application will automatically be reviewed for all academic scholarships—there is no additional scholarship application.

To apply for need-based financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available on the FAFSA website. Be sure to list Rollins College (code 001515) as a recipient of your information and allow four weeks for processing.

Transfer Applicants

Transfer applicants are considered students who have been (or will have been prior to starting at Rollins) enrolled full-time for at least 2 semesters at another college or university post high school graduation and have the equivalent of 30 semester credits or more. Full-time is generally defined as 12 credits or more per semester. An evaluation of your transfer credits and class standing will be emailed approximately two weeks after our admission decision.
