The AAC Staff

Who Are We?
The Academic Advising Center (AAC) oversees academic advising for all Trinity College students until they declare a major during their sophomore year. This summer, between mid-July and early August, you will have a virtual advising meeting with your college advisor to discuss building your fall schedule. You can also contact the AAC with questions all summer long. 

What Does Your Advisor Do?
Your college advisor will advise you broadly on your academic pathways and help you choose courses. In mid-July, you will receive an email at your Duke email address from your college advisor inviting you to schedule a virtual advising meeting. In this meeting, you can discuss course placement and choosing fall semester courses, your transition to Duke, and any general questions you have. Your advisor will lift your registration hold after this meeting so that you can register for fall classes on your registration date.

When Do You Register?
You will be able to see your registration date and the fall semester course options in DukeHub on June 3. You will register for your fall courses on either August 6 or 8 at 12:00pm EDT, after you have met with your college advisor. 

What Do You Need to Do Before Your Advising Meeting?
Send all your AP, IB, or other exam credit sent to Duke, complete your First-Year Questions, look for courses that sound interesting and add them to your Shopping Cart in DukeHub.
