The Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) program is designed to welcome you into the Dominican University community. SOAR helps you discover the tools needed to be a successful Dominican student both inside and outside the classroom.

The SOAR program includes academic assessments to help with creating your course schedule, meeting with your academic advisor and registering for classes, interacting with staff throughout the University, learning about campus resources, and meeting both new and current students. It’s the first step to reaching the new heights and amazing possibilities open to you at Dominican!

Attending SOAR is required for all new undergraduate students—incoming freshmen and transfers—whether you'll live on campus or commute. Space is limited and registrations may close before the deadline, so please make your arrangements to attend the entire program early.

You must pay your tuition deposit prior to registering for SOAR. Please pay your tuition deposit online if you have not done so, then register for the SOAR session that's most convenient for you using the links below. If you click on a SOAR program and see that is has already filled, please select the session for which you are next available.
