Hollins accepts transfer applicants for fall or spring semester on a rolling admission basis. As soon as your application is completed, it will be reviewed by the admission committee.
Hollins automatically grants four credits for a score of four or five on the College Board Advanced Placement Tests.
A student who is concurrently enrolled in high school and an accredited college or university will receive Hollins credit if all of the following conditions are met:
Hollins awards college credit to students who have received an International Baccalaureate diploma with a score of 30 or higher and have no score less than four in any one of the six examination groups.
Hollins students are required to live in campus housing. Some exceptions include Horizon, graduate, undergraduate students who are 23 years or older, undergraduate students with spouses and/or children, and undergraduate students who live with their parents and/or guardians in the Roanoke Valley area.
Living on campus is a great way to get to know the Hollins community and the many opportunities that are available to its students. Campus housing is guaranteed and most students live in single or double rooms in a variety of residence halls, each with its own atmosphere.
Hollins University holds a transfer student orientation two times a year (fall and spring). Orientation is typically held a few days before the student's first day of class. During orientation, students meet with their faculty advisor and register for classes. Special activities, informative meetings, and social events help new students get acquainted with Hollins traditions and the campus's resources. It is an excellent opportunity for new students to meet other Hollins students, faculty members, and staff before the semester begins.
Hollins University complies with the Virginia State Police in reporting information to the National Crime Center Registry.
