Accept The Challenge

We are looking for men and women who are prepared academically to take on rigorous liberal arts studies - students who welcome challenges that engage them intellectually, ethically and socially.

Application/Merit Scholarship Process

We start making admission decisions on a rolling basis in early fall of each academic year. Once accepted, qualified students will be considered for a merit scholarship.

Freshmen Students

When you apply to Dominican as a first-year student, your grade point average, class rank and test scores are key factors in our admission decisions—but who you are as a person and what you have done are equally important.

If your test scores are not included on your high school transcript, request the testing agency to forward a score report to Dominican using our college code numbers:

  • SAT: 1667
  • ACT: 1126
