Transfer Students

All Transfer Students are expected to participate in the New Student Orientation program. It is designed to help you get to know your fellow students, become more familiar with the campus, learn about Dominican history and traditions, and most importantly...have a great start to your college experience.


There will be sessions where we take care of the "business" of being a student, and there will also be sessions where we let you all have fun and meet your fellow penguins.

Peer Mentors will be your guides throughout the five-day event and they look forward to meeting you in August!
