Sign Up For

Blue Devil Buddies

Blue Devil Buddies is a one-on-one mentorship program that matches incoming students with like-minded current students, based on similar hobbies, interests, and/or personalities. We encourage you to sign up for a buddy by Wednesday, July 7.
If you have any questions, please email BlueDevilBuddies@duke.edu.

Shopping Cart Open

The shopping cart helps you plan your registration activities prior to the opening of your registration window. Now that shopping carts are open, you can explore classes offered in the Fall 2021 semester and add them to your virtual shopping cart.
Please note that having classes in your shopping cart or planner does not mean you are registered for them. You must actually enroll when your registration window opens later this summer. 
Duke Student Government (DSG) has created helpful videos to understand the Advanced Class Search feature and Schedule Builder feature in DukeHub.

Join the Next 

STS Webinar

New Student Programs will be hosting three Advising and Registration webinars next week as part of the Summer Transition Series. Join us July 6 (Trinity), July 7 (Pratt), and/or July 8 (Prehealth) to connect with Academic Deans and advisors. Registration is required for each webinar and can be accessed by clicking on the titles above.
Note: all webinars will be hosted via Zoom and recorded for later viewing. If you are unable to join us or don't want to forget your question, you can submit questions ahead of time and the host will ask on your behalf.

Answer First-Year Questions

Don't forget to complete your First-Year Questions! They help you reflect on your experiences and begin thinking about what your journey at Duke might look like. You can find your questions in MyDuke.

Register for International Orientation

International House is hosting International Undergraduate Student Orientation virtually this year! Programming will occur August 2 - 6 and precedes New Student Orientation.
International Undergraduate Orientation serves a key role in acclimating international students to the U.S. and Duke culture as well as a way of developing deep friendships with other students. Students who register and attend will be allowed to move in early (August 13 - 15) to allow more time to acclimate to Durham and Duke. Learn more.
*Note: If you are an international student participating in a Pre-Orientation Program, you will not need to request early move-in since this will happen for you automatically* 

Get to Know Duke

Each week we will introduce a new office on campus so you can "Get to Know Duke" throughout the summer. This week, we're checking out the UCAE Student Involvement Team!
