Advising

All students must be cleared by their academic advisor prior to registration. It is strongly recommended that you see your advisor early, during October.

Are you a new student? You will learn about the advising process during your ConnectSession, ýƵ’s student orientation. After you submit your enrollment application and activate your accounts, you should complete a ConnectSession.

Completing the enrollment process early will help you avoid the long wait for a response from the advisor and will give you access to a wider selection of course options. See the Academic Advising webpage for more information about how to connect with your advisor.

Are you a continuing student? Are you admitted to a program? If the answer is “yes” to both questions, you likely have an assigned advisor. Check your profile in for your advisor’s contact information. It is your responsibility to contact your advisor for registration. Contact your advisor as soon as possible; if they do not respond within three (3) business days, you may forward the email message you sent to your advisor with a message requesting assistance to advising@durhamtech.edu, and you will be connected to an advisor who will help you.
