New Student Registration Information

Due to changes in the academic calendar of the Divinity School and Duke, Fall registration starts by degree program in early August 2020.

Registration Dates By Degree Program

Monday, July 27 

DukeHub opens for bookbagging

Notes on bookbagging:

  • OLDTEST 752 time will change in Duke Hub to reflect the time on the Course of Instruction. This will allow registration of OT and languages (OLDTEST 760 or NEWTEST 760).
  • CHURMIN 761 time will change in Duke Hub to allow registration of OT and this course.
  • XTIANSTU 705 will be up soon.
  • When do these change on Duke Hub? When they are processed at central Duke. Try again tomorrow or maybe even Wednesday. It’s a high traffic time. Remember: bookbagging is just about securing what you hope to enroll in; it does not provide any priority. Register at your window to increase likelihood of entrance into sections that you seek.
  • Advising questions? Feel free to join our Office Hours tomorrow or Thursday (Zoom room sent in Academics email and Embarking newsletter).
  • Video for Spiritual Formation
  • For any students wishing to take Greek, see the Welcome Letter and Intro to Greek documents in the registration docs folder for more information
