Hello to our new students!

Class of 2028, transfer students, and Horizon students: We are excited to welcome you to Hollins!

The Class of 2027

We’ll give you the information you need to help you get ready for Hollins University.

First-Year Students

Before you arrive in the fall, you’ll get ready for Hollins in a number of ways.

For international students:

  • The International Student Orientation Program (ISOP) is required for all international students who haven’t studied in the United States. We’ll prepare you for living and studying here, and let you know about the many services Hollins can offer. HU Connect Director | International Student Engagement Director Erin Carney (carneyek@hollins.edu) will coordinate plans with enrolling international students.

Transfer Students
