Information for International Candidates


Dominican’s Global Education Office (GEO) is committed to ensuring that international students experience a pleasant arrival and transition to Dominican. To aid in this process, GEO provides the following services to international students:


Arrival Assistance

GEO assists new international students with arranging for paid airport pick-up from SFO. Upon request, for a small fee, GEO provides incoming international students with a welcome package that includes a pillow, bedding set, towels and sim card.  


Housing and Accommodation Support

GEO assists international students in finding appropriate housing before, during and after arrival.   Students seeking off-campus housing are given individual assistance prior to and upon arrival.  Students may continue to use GEO as a resource for housing issues as they arise.  


Life in the U.S. Adjustment and Academic Success

International students meet individually with a specialized international student adviser to assist with adjustment to the U.S. way of life and U.S. academic system.  Advisers are available 24/7 to assist international students with any inquires or issues they may have. The student club Global Ambassador's runs a buddy program that matches new international students with a Dominican student to facilitate a smooth transition to the U.S. and university life.  


CPT/OPT Placement Service

All DU international students may participate in CPT/OPT placement pending academic program requirements and USCIS approval. Students will work with a internship specialist to identify appropriate employment opportunities in their professional field.
