  3. On the right, in the box entitled “Enroll/Waive,” click on the hyperlink “Enroll/Waive: Student Health Insurance Plan.” This will take you to another web page.
  4. Under Student Information, click on the drop-down menu next to “[Select Program Type].”  Click on “Dominican House of Studies” on the drop-down menu.
  5. Under the banner “Secure Login,” enter your student ID number and your date of birth on the spaces provided.
  6. Press “Get Started” and follow the directions.

FOBs or electronic keys are provided to students upon enrollment and returned at the end of the academic year. They can be used to access the faculty wing and chapel. Please see the Administrative Secretary, Miss Sharon Smith, to obtain one.
