Admitted Students

Congratulations on your admission, and welcome to Dominican! The Office of Graduate Admissions is here to help you make the transition to graduate school. We know it's an important decision, and we are happy to be your resource in the coming months. Don't hesitate to contact us!

Graduate Orientation

Join us on Saturday, August 25, from 9:00 am  to 1:00 pm for Graduate Orientation! You'll meet fellow graduate students and learn about important campus resources, like the library, IT, and financial aid. RSVP here

Next Steps:

1. Respond to your Offer of Admission

You'll receive an email with a link to the online enrollment response form within two days of admission.

2. Pay the Tuition Deposit

The admission deposit is not an extra fee but rather, a credit on the student's tuition account. Candidates can pay the deposit online or over the phone with a credit card. Deposits made by check can be mailed to the Office of Admissions.

3. File for Financial Aid

If you have not completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you will want to do so soon. You can complete this step at any point so no need to wait until you pay your deposit. You will also need to complete the Dominican Financial Aid Application.

4. Register for Courses

Upon depositing, candidates will receive an email from their admissions counselor introducing the student to their advisor. The advisor will coordinate registration directly with the student.

5. Get your ID Card and Dominican Email

After making the tuition deposit, students can get their Penguin Pass from Information Technology. 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 may also call 415-257-0123 to set up the initial account remotely. You will still need to stop by IT during the first two weeks of classes to get your ID card and additional information.

6. Understand the Tuition Billing Structure

A Payment Plan is available to all students at Dominican. Once you are registered, you can call Business Services at 415-257-0161 to obtain tuition information or to set-up the payment plan. Please note, if you are filing for financial aid, your anticipated financial aid may not appear on your account immediately.
