Academic Advising

Academic advising at Durham Tech is the key to your success. All students – with the exception of visiting students, special Students, and post baccalaureate Students – are assigned an Academic Advisor. Our advisors help you determine your interests, explore career options, set academic goals, select courses, answer questions about your program of study, and ensure you’re ready for registration.

Important: Follow the Enrollment Steps prior to meeting with an advisor. Walk-in advising assistance is available during the hours below.
