This section provides information about Duke’s liberal arts curriculum and academic requirements that will help you plan your fall classes. You will find information about the goals of a liberal arts education in Trinity College, course placement guidelines, advising, academic resources and other opportunities at Duke.
By June 1 your assigned summer advisor will email you at your Duke email to make arrangements for a summer advising meeting. You’ll schedule a meeting with your summer advisor to discuss course placement and selection for fall semester courses, as well as general questions, helpful resources and your transition to Duke. The fall semester course schedule will be available on June 28, and your summer advising meeting may be scheduled before then, but even without being able to see fall classes, you will get helpful input on your fall schedule and can follow up via email after June 28 if you have questions. You can also contact the Academic Advising Center with questions at any time, by phone or email.
When you arrive on campus in August, you will meet with your college advisor, who you’ll work with until you declare your major, and begin exploring all Duke’s curricular and co-curricular opportunities. Read both the “Learning at Duke” and “Registration” sections carefully as they prepare you to choose and register for your courses this summer.
The Academic Advising Center (AAC) is here to help if you have any questions this summer.
The ACADEMIC ADVISING CENTER is located on East Campus, behind Brown Residence Hall.
