Admission Requirements for First Year Students


Transcripts

Ask your high school counselor to forward transcripts directly to the Office of Admissions


ACT/SAT

Dominican College is test optional, so the results of standardized tests are not required. If you would like to include test scores with your application please:
Submit the results of one of the following examinations to the Office of Admissions:
(1) Scholastic Aptitude Test (S.A.T.) of the College Entrance Examination Board. The C.E.E.B. Code for Dominican College is 2190.
(2) The American College Testing (A.C.T.) Assessment Test. The A.C.T. code for Dominican College is 2730.

All test-optional applicants will be expected to complete a minimum of 16 units of college-preparatory coursework:

· 4 units of English

· 3 units of mathematics (including algebra and geometry)

· 2 units of a laboratory science

· 2 units of social sciences

· 5 additional units in any of the above subject areas (and/or in a foreign language).

Certain students will continue to be required to submit SAT or ACT scores, including those who have been homeschooled, have completed a General Education Diploma (G.E.D.), do not meet the above 16-unit requirement, attend a high school with an untraditional grading system and international students. In addition, international students whose native language is not English are required to submit the Test of English as a Foreign Language (T.O.E.F.L.) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination scores.

Applicants must indicate on the Dominican College admission application or the Common Application whether they want the standardized test scores to be considered for admission.  If a student has previously sent scores to the College and later indicates on the application that the scores should not be considered, the scores will be deleted from the college admission system. Students who change their minds about whether test scores should be considered, after submitting an application, must send an email to admissions@dc.edu.

For more information about the new policy, please email admissions@dc.edu or call 845-848-7901.
