Office of Undergraduate Admissions


With more than 60 academic programs, real-world learning opportunities, and a support network dedicated to your success, your Dominican Experience can be anything you want it to be. 

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is here to serve you as you explore the many opportunities available to you as a prospective Dominican student. We carefully consider each applicant — looking at the whole you —  to choose students who will enrich the diverse Dominican community. We do so through the following methods:

Admissions Planning

Our knowledgeable and friendly Undergraduate Admissions team will work with you every step of the way as you prepare your application and learn about your financial aid options, including loans and scholarships. 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 major you are interested in.

Campus Visit Days

Campus Visit Days are entirely dedicated to you and your Dominican Experience. You and your family will enjoy a personalized guided tour of campus, meet faculty and current students, learn about our new test optional policy, explore student life, and attend a financial aid information session.

Campus Tours

Who better to show you around than our Student Ambassadors! Not only are they Dominican students, but they also work in our Admissions office, and can help connect you with resources for a smooth path to becoming a Penguin. 

On-campus tours are now available by appointment, as are our guided virtual tours. So whether you choose to visit us in person, or from the convenience of Zoom, we can't wait to show you where you'll take classes, live, and have fun as a Dominican student.
