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 asynchronous online SOAR modules, 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.

Please be advised that your completing your online SOAR modules is required. Once you complete your online course, you will be provided a link to sing up for a Zoom Registration Day.

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


All transfer students will be invited to complete an online course via Canvas (Dominican’s learning management system). You will receive an email from the Dominican University Support Center (IT) to set up your network ID and password within 24 of signing up for Online Transfer SOAR. This course is asynchronous and can be completed on your own time. The date of the event will read "June 1st", but this is only when the course becomes available. It is open from June 1st through August 12th.

Once you complete your Online Transfer SOAR course, you will be invited to sign up for one of our Transfer Registration Days that will be taking place on Fridays throughout the summer. You will sign up for a one-hour 1:1 virtual advising appointment with a member of the Advising team. You will not be able to sign up for a Registration Day until you have completed your online SOAR orientation course.
