Join us Thursday, June 2 for our Pratt Academics and Registration webinar

This section, along with the Registration instructions in the next section, provides you with a framework for understanding your first semester of Pratt academics and includes instructions about how to register for fall classes. In this section you will find information about course placement, advising, academic resources and other opportunities at Duke. This information is sufficient to help you prepare a schedule of classes for the Fall Semester. Keep in mind Pratt and Trinity requirements are different. Accordingly, this portion contains Pratt-specific information.

After you arrive at Duke in August, you will be able to explore all of Duke’s many curricular and co-curricular academic opportunities. During the semester, you will also have time to meet with your “360 Coach” and other academic mentors. Read both the “Learning at Duke” and “Registration” sections carefully, and refer back to each section frequently. Finally, be sure to check your Duke email account regularly over the summer and once you are on campus. Your Duke email is how we will communicate information for which you are responsible.

Pratt has academic deans available all summer to answer your questions about curriculum requirements or putting together your fall schedule. Just phone or email:
