Transfer & International Students
How to Apply as a Transfer Student
Regina Dominican is happy to accept applications from interested students who wish to transfer into our school. The transfer process for the beginning of the school year must begin by July 30. Mid-year transfer requests must be made by November 30.
- The transfer inquiry process begins by reaching out to a member of the enrollment team to schedule a tour of campus and also submitting a copy of the applicant's unofficial transcript either prior to the tour or day-of.
- After a tour of campus, the family will meet with a member of the enrollment team to go over questions and review the application process which is online.
- Once an online application, attendance/discipline form, letter of recommendation, and $50.00 application fee has been submitted, the admissions committee will review the application and then decide on whether or not to move forward with an in-person interview.
