Office of Graduate Admissions


Dominican offers the best small university experience in Northern California by delivering a well-rounded education, supportive relationships and career-building experiences to students from all backgrounds. 

The Office of Graduate Admissions is here to serve you as you explore the many opportunities available to you as a prospective Dominican graduate student. We do so through the following methods:

Information Sessions

Attend an information session to discover the opportunities Dominican offers to further your education. Program-specific events are designed to give you an opportunity to meet and speak with faculty members, gain a better understanding of the admission requirements and application process, and understand your financial aid options. Our information sessions are built around your busy schedule. We offer day and evening sessions, both on-campus and online.

They are here to support you as you make this important decision and are available to answer any questions you may have about the admissions process or the specific program you are interested in.
