Enrolling as a Visiting Student
Transfer and Visiting Students applying for admission to Durham Tech must meet all admissions requirements for their chosen program. Some programs may waive placement testing if the applicant has previously completed college-level math or English courses. Students should consult an academic advisor during drop-in hours before taking placement tests or enrolling in courses. Students also should review the Transcript Evaluation web page.
Students currently enrolled at another college may take university transferable courses at Durham Tech to transfer to their original college. These visiting students are not eligible for course substitution, credit by examination, financial aid, or veteran’s benefits; and they do not qualify for academic recognition (President’s List or Dean’s List). Documentation of prior course work or testing is required to enroll in courses with prerequisites.
Students who need one or two courses before enrolling in graduate or professional school should look at the Durham Tech post-baccalaureate degree course options.
For students who first language is not US English, the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program can help you improve your higher-level English skills necessary for you to succeed in your coursework. Follow the College enrollment steps and read more about EAP testing and course placement.
