Applicants who hold an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited college or university are eligible to apply for admission to the program. For information and application materials, students should contact Rollins College, Hamilton Holt School Evening Degree Programs, Master of Planning in Civic Urbanism, 203 East Lyman Avenue, Winter Park, Florida 32789, call 407-646-2232, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.rollins.edu/holt/application to download the Application for Graduate Admission.
Applications will be only considered up on receipt of all materials.
A faculty committee will evaluate applications for admission to the program. In making its decisions, the admission committee will consider an applicant’s work experience, personal statement, letters of recommendation, grade point average, test scores, and any other information the applicant wishes to provide. An incomplete application package (missing application form, official transcripts, letters of recommendation, or test scores) will delay the evaluation and decision. Applicants are notified of the committee’s decision by mail.
Transfer courses may be substituted only for electives and not for the required core courses. With the director’s approval, up to two transfer courses are counted toward the graduation requirement of 36 semester hours for the degree. Only graduate courses completed with a grade of "B" or better at regionally accredited colleges and universities will be evaluated. No transfer credit will be given for courses used to satisfy requirements for another degree. No transfer credit will be given for internships, practica, or life-experience courses at the graduate level. The transcript submitted from the college or university where the course was completed determines the total number of credit hours awarded for the transfer of courses. Students who transfer course credits into the program are advised that they will have to take a sufficient number of courses at Rollins College in order to earn the 36 semester hours required for completion of the Master of Planning in Civic Urbanism degree. Students should discuss transfer credits with the director of the program. Students who are requesting transfer credit need to provide a formal request, a copy of the course description, a syllabus, and an official transcript to the director.
