Once you’re registered for classes, there are a few more important next steps to take.

Purchase your Textbooks

Textbooks can be purchased or rented at the Stepan Bookstore on the first floor of Power Hall.

  • You can contact the bookstore at dom@bkstr.com or (708) 524-6983. More information is also available on the bookstore’s website.
  • Make sure to have your course number and section available when purchasing textbooks.
Fill out your Health History and Certificate of Immunity Forms

Students taking six or more credit hours at any of Dominican's campuses must submit the required health forms online prior to their first class. The Certificate of Immunity is a legal requirement of the State of Illinois. Fines will be incurred each semester for students whose records are missing, incomplete or not valid.

  • You can submit your health forms in person to the Wellness Center, through their online student portal or by fax to (708) 488-5072
  • All health-related questions can be directed to (708) 524-6229.
Apply for a Part-time Student Employment or Graduate Assistantship

There are a limited number of part-time jobs, several graduate assistant positions available and other positions university-wide. Search employment opportunities. If you have any questions or concerns, contact the appropriate staff or faculty member or gradinfo@dom.edu.

Register now

If you are enrolled in an on-campus program, you are highly encouraged to attend. We’ll help you finalize key next steps such as purchasing a parking permit and applying for your Student ID. If you can’t attend, you’ll need to complete the steps below on your own before the start of classes.

If you’re enrolled in a low-residency hybrid program, such as the Master of Arts in Mediation and Conflict Resolution, or a fully online program, you are not required to attend or complete these steps. If you’re not sure if your program requires orientation, please contact gradinfo@dom.edu.

  • For incoming summer II students: To buy a parking permit, take your schedule to the Student Accounts office (Lewis Hall, Room 119) and fill out a parking permit form. The parking permit form may also be completed online. You will need to pay the fee for your parking permit at Student Accounts or online (see Step 2 in the parking permit link above). You will receive a receipt for your payment. Take your receipt to the IT Support Center (Lewis Hall, Room 048). Present your receipt, a valid driver’s license, and your vehicle registration to obtain your parking pass.
  • For incoming fall students: Please wait until the 2019-2020 application is available to buy a permit.
  • Fill out a Star Card application in order to obtain your Student ID card. There is no charge for the ID card.
    • The application is available in the Support Center (Lewis Hall, Room 048) or online. Fill it out, print, and take with you to the Support Center. You will need another form of ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, in order to pick up your card.
Complete Campus Clarity

Dominican University has partnered with Campus Clarity Think About It to provide the educational material required by the U.S. Department of Education and Office of Civil Rights. This interactive online training tool will help Dominican students further their understanding of important topics like sexual harassment and bystander intervention that will not only be beneficial in the campus environment but also in the larger community beyond Dominican. This training is required of all new students. Invitations for Campus Clarity training will be sent to your Dominican e-mail account. If you have any questions, please contact Norah Collins.
