Tips for New and Visiting Students

  • Start the enrollment process early to avoid lengthy wait times during busy Drop-in Advising periods and to gain access to a wider selection of course options.
  • The academic advisors in Advising Services are trained to assist you with your transition to Durham Tech and course selection for your first semester. They will share information with you about Durham Tech’s programs, resources, and services for students.
  • Our advisors are here to help, so be sure to ask questions!

Contact an advisor using the information found on the Academic Advising home page.
