Spring Semester 2020
Semester Start and Enrollment Dates
Enrollment due date for Spring Semester 2020: Tuesday, October 15. The last date to submit an enrollment application and residency determination is Wednesday, January 8 (by 5 p.m.), however, financial aid documents may not be processed by the start of the semester.
Students are encouraged to complete all required admissions forms, attend a ConnectSession, and submit transcripts and financial aid documents by the enrollment due date; admissions and financial aid processes may take significant time to complete, so start early!
Full Semester and Mini-Session I courses begin: Monday, January 13
Mini-Session II courses begin: Monday, March 16
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 drop-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 drop-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 Self-Service 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 he/she does not respond within 3 business days, you may meet with an advisor during drop-in hours in the Advising office, Wynn Center, room 10-200, or at the Orange County Campus. View drop-in hours on the Durham Tech website.
Are you a continuing visiting student? Have you previously earned more than 12 hours of transferable 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 Advising office, Wynn Center, room 10-200, or at the Orange County Campus during drop-in hours.
Priority registration is awarded to continuously enrolled students who have been admitted to a program as of Fall 2019 or prior. Assignment is determined based on credit hours completed.

Currently registered students may adjust their schedules to add courses. These students may register for seated or hybrid courses only (not online courses), and the section of the course being added must have met no more than once. For any course added during the schedule adjustment period, payment is due at the time of registration. Students requesting an exception to the schedule adjustment procedures must make a request to the academic dean over the program area responsible for the course.
