Drop-in Advising

Drop-in Advising is available for the following student groups:

  • Returning visiting students;
  • New visiting and program students who have already attended a ConnectSession;
  • New visiting and program students who have completed 12 or more transferrable credits of college-level course work who choose not to attend a ConnectSession. All new students are strongly encouraged to participate in a ConnectSession.

Please Note: Students must have already submitted official transcripts to Durham Tech or bring an official transcript (in a sealed envelope from the educational institution) to Drop-in Advising.

Advisors will be available on a first-come, first-served drop-in basis in the Admissions and Advising Services Center, located in the Phail Wynn, Jr. Student Services building on Main Campus, room 10-200, second floor, and at the Orange County Campus on the dates and times listed below. As a general rule, you should plan to arrive at least 45 minutes prior to the close of the drop-in period. Once registration begins, wait times for Drop-in Advising may exceed two hours. Students who arrive after we have reached capacity for the day will be asked to return another day.

Depending on advisor availability and drop-in traffic, some wait time may be required. Advisors will continue to take drop-in students until the capacity for the day has been reached. Online Advising is also available to those who meet the requirements.
