- Submit your tuition and housing deposits
Your tuition deposit ($250) and housing deposit ($500) are due by June 1 and are non-refundable. New students (first-year and transfer) wishing to live on campus will receive a housing application once they have submitted their tuition and housing deposits. Housing is limited and is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority is given to students who deposit by June 1. Learn more about living at Dominican.
- Create your Dominican email password
After your tuition deposit is received, Dominican will send you an email containing your Dominican email address and steps for setting up an email password. Setting up your Dominican email is extremely important as it will then allow you to take placement assessments and register for classes. Contact Information and Technology Services at (415) 257-0123 with any questions.
- Take placement assessments
You will receive a message sent to your Dominican student email account that details any required placement assessments. In order to register for classes, you will first need to complete these assessments.
- Sign up for classes*
Your academic advisor will assist you in registering for your classes online (April-June). Advisors will be available to help you develop your class schedule while achieving your academic and extracurricular goals. Your advisor will contact you to arrange an advising and registration appointment.
