Every student who intends to study abroad must meet with the Associate Director of Study Abroad, Giulia Welch, and work closely with his or her academic adviser. The student's academic adviser can help ensure that academic credit will transfer and/or apply toward the student's specific major course of study.
Important: Dominican University of California will accept units for non-Dominican programs only after a student has obtained pre-departure approval from the student's academic adviser.
Individual program requirements may vary, but there are options for every academic major. Some programs may require a specific level of language proficiency, and all require a minimum grade point average. Students should investigate their options as early in their academic career as possible to ensure eligibility and maximum range of options.
The costs of study abroad programs vary depending upon the program selected. The institution of foreign study must be a Title 4-eligible school in order to receive financial aid through Dominican University of California. Students can request information about the Title 4 from the institution itself.
Federal and state financial aid programs are available to help fund study abroad programs that are approved for credit by Dominican. Students may also use private loans to fund their experience.
Unless students are interested in a non-federal loan, students must file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application and the Dominican University of California Financial Aid application in order to apply.
Students should contact Dominican's Financial Aid Office for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org, 415-257-1350.
Students who wish to apply for Dominican , federal and state financial aid to help them with their study abroad program must review the study abroad financial aid guidelines.
