Graduate Students | Dominican University College

Prospective DUC graduate students should have an average of B + or the equivalent. Though academic performance is an important consideration, the prospective student’s entire profile will be taken into consideration when evaluating the application. Candidates are encouraged to apply by March 1st for the fall session and October 1st for the winter session. Though DUC uses a rolling enrolment system that admits students as space becomes available, applying early increases your chances of admission as your application will be processed in the order it was received. Those with undergraduate degrees in a related field may still be admitted, but supplementary conditions or a qualifying year may be required. Additional requirements for specific graduate programs are outlined in program descriptions.

In addition, applicants to the graduate program should include the following with their application package:

1) Two letters of recommendation. Please contact your referees before submitting your  application to verify their email address as well as their availability to write your letter of recommendation.

2) Other required document(s):

·         Letter of intent:  intended area of specialization for your thesis

·         Writing sample: 1500 words

·         CV

All application packages will become the property of Dominican University College and will not be returned to the applicants.
