Welcome to Dominican University! To help you prepare for your future at Dominican, we have created a special session of the Student Orientation, Advising & Registration (SOAR) program to assist in your transition as a new student.

Through your SOAR program, you will learn about the academic expectations of the university, discover opportunities for student involvement, find out about services and resources, and meet other Dominican students.

As a transfer student, you have the option to attend SOAR in-person (on campus) or online (through Zoom). The programs are identical and will allow you to connect with the campus community and register for classes.

You must pay your Tuition Deposit before registering for the SOAR program. If you have not paid your deposit yet, you can do so here

What is SOAR?

All transfer orientation programs (in person or online) will begin at 9 a.m. CST with a check in and welcome session. After learning about Dominican history and getting acclimated to the campus community, you will meet other incoming students and your TORCH (orientation) Leaders. These current students will guide you throughout your orientation experience. You will learn about the different core curricula options at Dominican and prepare for your advising session. After lunch you'll register for classes, learn about Dominican's commitment to diversity and equity, and hear from important campus partners such as Career Development, Student Life, and University Ministry.
