Make sure you have an appointment to meet with your academic advisor prior to registration. Your advisor has to “clear” you on the college’s Colleague system to register. If you procrastinate, you may not be able to get into the classes that fill quickly!
Being prepared will help you make the most of advising.
- Check your ConnectMail account regularly for updates from your advisor and other college departments.
- Schedule appointments with your advisor in a timely manner and don’t be late.
- Review your plan of study and think about which classes you would like to take prior to your meeting.
- Become familiar with the academic policies and procedures outlined in the College Catalog.
- Seek assistance as soon as a problem arises. Do not wait!
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 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 inWebAdvisor 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.
Are you a continuing visiting student? Have you previously earned more than 12 hours of transferrable college credit? Continuing visiting students or new students with 12 or more transferrable 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 1200, or at the Orange County Campus during walk-in hours. Online advising forms and walk-in hours are posted in the advising section. Online advising ends December 19 at 5 p.m.
