How do I enroll for classes?

Trying to get started on new things is very difficult. The first thing you need to do is reach out to your counselor to set up a meeting. Your counselor should be able to answer all your questions and get you up and running. They should also be able to connect you with a Durham Tech advisor who can help you from there.

Figuring it all out is very stressful; however, it benefits you in ways you don’t realize.
