Admitted Graduate Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to a Graduate Program at Dominican! What’s next? Accept our offer of admission and you are one step closer to earning your graduate degree. 

Next Steps

  1. Respond to your Offer of Admission
    Within two days of being admitted, you'll receive an email with a link to the Online Enrollment Response form. To start the enrollment process, please complete and submit the form. Once we have your response, you will receive an email with information about how to submit your tuition deposit. 
  2. Pay the Tuition Deposit
    Your tuition deposit serves as a credit on your tuition account. You can pay the deposit with a credit card online, or mail your check to The Office of Graduate Admissions, 50 Acacia Ave., San Rafael, CA 94901. Visit our Graduate tuition and fees page to learn more. 
  3. File for Financial Aid 
    Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and use Dominican’s code: 001196. You can complete this step at any time, so there is no need to wait until you pay your deposit. You will also need to complete the Dominican Financial Aid Application.
  4. Register for Courses
    You will receive an email from your admissions counselor introducing you to your academic advisor. Your advisor will coordinate your registration schedule with you.
  5. Get your ID Card and Dominican Email
    After submitting your tuition deposit, you will receive a "Penguin Pass" from Information and Technology Services. The Penguin Pass is an ID card, official student email address (where all communications will be sent), and network user ID. If you cannot visit campus prior to your first day, you should visit IT during the first two weeks of classes to get pick up your ID card.
  6. Final Transcripts
    Final official transcripts are due before the beginning of your first semester. If you have been admitted to the university based on unofficial transcripts or courses in progress, you will need to provide final official transcripts from previous institutions before you can begin classes. 

Dominican supports you every step of the way. If you have questions, we're here to help!
