Transfer Credit

Learn more about how your credits will transfer to Rollins.

General Education Requirements & Evaluation Process

Transfer students must meet all general education curriculum and major requirements to earn a Rollins College degree. The Office of Student Records reviews and evaluates courses taken at other institutions and determines courses/credit to be accepted and any general education requirements those courses fulfill. Students who enter Rollins College ready to declare their major program of study may request a major course evaluation from the Office of Student Records.

ICUF Articulation Manual

  • In the evaluation of transfer credit, four (4) semester hours equals one Rollins course.
  • Transfer credit is awarded only for coursework taken at regionally accredited institutions.
  • Transfer credit is not awarded for courses with a grade below ‘C-,’ courses taken by mail, or coursework not typically offered in a liberal arts college.
  • No more than the equivalent of sixty-four (64) semester hours of credit are accepted from a two-year institution.
  • Students with sixty (60) semester hours of credit enter Rollins College with junior standing, but may need additional time to fulfill the requirements of specific majors.
  • Rollins College participates in an articulation agreement between the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida (ICUF) and the Florida Division of Community Colleges and Workforce Development.
  • Through this participation, students who enter Rollins with a completed Associate of Arts (AA) degree from a regionally accredited community college or state college and transfer a total of sixty (60) semester hours will matriculate with junior standing.
  • Transfer credits/hours must meet the same standards and program requirements as those for native Rollins students.
  • As part of the College’s participation in the ICUF Articulation Agreement, General Education Curriculum Requirements are waived for students with an AA degree from a regionally accredited community college or state college as well.
  • Upper-level writing reinforcement and oral communication requirements, both part of the College’s general education curriculum, are infused into one or more upper-level courses within each major course of study.
  • Once admitted to full-time degree status, students must complete at least seventy (70) semester hours in the College (including Rollins or Rollins-affiliated off-campus courses, but excluding Hamilton Holt School courses).
  • Moreover, students must be enrolled full-time during the last two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summer terms).
  • Students must complete a minimum of 140 semester hours of academic work, of which at least sixty-four (64) semester hours must be outside a single department prefix.
  • All students must complete a minimum of sixteen (16) semester hours that are not used to meet either a general education curriculum or major requirement.
