Freshman Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR)
Orientation Part 1

The first step in your orientation to Dominican University is attending the Summer SOAR program. This is a two-day, overnight program and every student joining us in the fall is required to attend the full program. There is also a Family Orientation that takes place from 8:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m. on the first day of your SOAR program. A Family SOAR session will be available in Spanish. Families are highly encouraged, not required, to attend SOAR with their student.

Orientation Part 2

The second step of your orientation is Welcome Weekend. Welcome Weekend builds on your experience at SOAR and provides additional information and resources for you and your family to help you succeed at Dominican, and welcome both you and your family to the Dominican community. You will receive additional information about registering for Welcome Weekend in the mail over the summer.

IMPORTANT: The university will send all communications regarding SOAR (confirmation, assessment login and password information, etc.) to the email address you provided when you applied to Dominican. If you have changed your email and would like to update your information please contact:

Please call the Student Success and Engagement at (708) 524-6458 or if you have any questions or need special accommodations.
