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 applications for the beginning of the school year must be submitted no later than July 30 for consideration.  Mid-year transfer requests must be made by November 30.


Students interested in transferring to Regina Dominican must adhere to the guidelines and policies below. All transfer inquiries must be initiated by a parent or guardian. 
  • 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 $75.00 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. Click here to pay the application fee.
  • If an applicant is invited to interview they will schedule a time with our Assistant Principal and Director of Student services to conduct an interview. Once the interview is complete an admissions decision will be decided. 
Applicant Qualifications
Regina Dominican encourages interested students to apply via the Transfer Student Application process if they meet the below criteria: 
  • Applicant is required to be in good academic standing (no Ds or Fs).
  • Applicant must have the expected amount of credits completed for grade level (Regina Dominican does not accept transfer students who are required to repeat a grade level).
  • No disciplinary record (including suspensions, expulsions etc.).
  • Applicants must submit an In Good Standing Form (if applicable).
  • Applicant must possess a demonstrated passion for the mission of Regina Dominican.
Note: We are not staffed to support, and are therefore unable to offer admission to students with behavioral disorders (including but not limited to oppositional defiant disorder, intermittent explosive disorder, and school refusal).
Although our small and personalized environment is supportive, we do not provide a therapeutic educational program.
Final transcripts will be required after an acceptance decision has been made. Final transcripts should be send to the Regina Dominican Enrollment Office (they may not be faxed).
