Summer 2015 Enrollment and Registration Dates

19 Mar

Important Dates
Summer 2015 Credit Courses

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 Summer 2015  is March 15

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 April.

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 by visiting http://www.durhamtech.edu/admissions/connectsession.htm.

Students who attend a ConnectSession will receive advising during walk-in hours. Walk-in hours are posted at http://www.durhamtech.edu/advising/index.htm. 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 are not responsive within 3 – 5 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 at http://www.durhamtech.edu/advising/index.htm.

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 at http://www.durhamtech.edu/advising/index.htm. Online advising ends May 13 at 12 p.m.
