Priority Enrollment Due Date
Students who complete all required admissions forms, attend a ConnectSession, and submit transcripts and financial aid documents by the due date can expect to be admitted to the college and have the option to charge tuition and books to financial aid (if eligible for an award) at the beginning of general registration.
Priority enrollment due date for Spring 2015: October 15
AdvisingAll 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 walk-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 walk-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 WebAdvisor 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 they have not responded within 5 business days, you may meet with an advisor during walk-in hours in the Admissions and Enrollment Services office, Wynn Center, room 1200, or at the Orange County Campus. Walk-in hours are posted in the advising section.
Early registration is reserved for continuing students who have been admitted to a program as of Fall 2014 or prior and have enrolled in courses during at least one of the past three semesters. Eligibility is determined by credit hours completed by the start of the early registration period.
