Advising

All students must be cleared by their academic advisor prior to registration. It is strongly recommended that you see your advisor early, prior to November.

Are you a new student? You will learn about the advising process during your ConnectSession, Durham Tech’s student orientation. After you submit your enrollment application, you should reserve a spot in a ConnectSession.

Students who attend a ConnectSession will receive advising during drop-in hours. If you need more than 30 minutes for your advising session, you may schedule an individual follow-up appointment with a first-year academic advisor. Beginning the enrollment process early will help you avoid long wait times during drop-in advising and give you access to a wider selection of course options.

Are you a continuing student? Are you admitted to a program? If the answer is yes to both questions, you have an assigned advisor. Check your profile in Self-Service for your advisor’s contact information. It is your responsibility to schedule an appointment or submit an online request for advising prior to registration. Please contact your advisor as soon as possible; if he/she is not responsive within 3 business days, you may meet with an advisor during drop-in hours in theAdmissions and Advising Services office, Wynn Center, room 10-200, or at the Orange County Campus. View the advising section.

Are you a continuing visiting student? Have you previously earned more than 12 hours of transferable college credit? Continuing visiting students or new students with 12 or more transferable college credits who choose not to attend a ConnectSession may submit a request for online advising or meet with an advisor in the Admissions and Enrollment Services office, Wynn Center, room 10-200, or at the Orange County Campus during drop-in hours. Online advising forms and drop-in hours are posted in the advising section.
