Office Hours

7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

SCHEDULE FOR April -MAY 17, 2019

NOTE: Although our goal is to stick as closely as we can to this schedule, it is subject to change without notice. Students are welcome to call ahead to determine if there have been any changes. Our office telephone number is 217-443-8750. We look forward to assisting you.

We operate on an appointment basis April – May 17, 2019
on weekdays except Walk-in Wednesdays.

APPOINTMENTS FOR REGISTRATION: Must be scheduled in advance by calling 217-443-8750 or stopping by the Academic Advisement and Counseling Office, LH-104. Please have your student ID number available when you call or come in to make an appointment. For the best advisement possible, students are scheduled with the advisor who specializes in their major/career goal.


New Students: Before we can schedule an appointment, you must complete the Admission process, including a New Student Orientation and submitting test scores (ACT, SAT) or take placement assessments here at DACC.

Current and Returning Students: We are unable to schedule appointments or register any student who owes a balance to the College. If you are unsure, you can check your account through your Jaguar Spot/Web Advisor or contact the Cashier at 217-443-8767.

WALK-IN WEDNESDAY: An appointment is not needed to meet with an advisor on Wednesdays. We do, however, recommend that students stop in or call ahead to determine their specific advisor’s availability. General hours to sign in for walk-ins are 7:45 a.m. – 4:15 p.m. It is recommended that students arrive by 3 p.m., as end of the day appointment spots often fill early.

When students come on a walk-in basis during the busy registration season, they should be prepared for some waiting time. We plan 30-45 minutes per appointment and calculate wait times accordingly. We appreciate your patience as we give each and every DACC student the individual attention and thorough academic advisement that they deserve.

During the month of April 2019, we will have an advisor available until 5:30 p.m., so we can sign in walk-ins up until 5 p.m. if we do not fill those spots earlier.

DACC will be closed on Friday, April 19, 2019
