October 30:  First day for traditional registration by appointment or call 217-443-8750 for walk-in hours.

APPOINTMENTS: Must be scheduled in advance by calling 217-443-8750 or stopping by the Counseling Office, LH-104. Please have your student ID number available when you call or come in to make an appointment. Appointments fill up very quickly!

For the best advisement possible, we schedule appointments or assign walk-ins to the advisor for your particular major. If your advisor is not available when you are able to come in, any counselor/advisor can be of assistance, but we strongly recommend that you plan to see the person who specializes in your major.

Every Wednesday is "Walk-in Wednesday."  An appointment is not needed to meet with an advisor, and advisors are available all day.  We recommend that you call ahead to determine your advisor's availability, but general hours are 7:45 a.m. - 4:15 p.m.  (We recommend avoiding 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., when we try to wrap up the morning walk-ins and advisors work in their lunch breaks.


Please know that we cannot schedule appointments for or register any student who owes a balance to the College. If you owe a balance or are unsure about whether or not you owe a balance, please contact the Cashier at 217-443-8767.

If you com as a walk-in to see us during the busy registration season, please be prepared for 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 he/she deserves.
