Office Hours


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.

Our office will operate on a walk-in basis January 2 through March 31, 2019.

Walk in hours usually begin 7:45-8:15 a.m. depending on the advisor, Monday through Friday, and our last walk-ins are signed in between 3:15-4:15 p.m. depending on the advisor. We recommend that student’s call ahead to determine their advisor’s availability.

We will not have walk in hours on the following dates and times:

DAY DATE Walk-ins NOT Avaliable
Tuesday January 1 New Year’s Day
Monday February 18 Presidents’ Day




We will start scheduling registration appointments for the Summer/Fall 2018 semesters.
Appointments begin Monday, April 1.

MARCH 29: Students interested in registering themselves on line must be approved by this date.
See advisor for info/approval.
MARCH 29: On-line registration for approved students begins.
APRIL 1: First day for traditional registration by appointment except on Wednesdays. Call 217-443-8750 to schedule appointments.

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 generally scheduled with the advisor who specializes in their major/career goal.

During the busy registration season when appointments need to be scheduled most days, every Wednesday is “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.


Please know that we cannot schedule appointments for or register any student who owes a balance to the College. Students should contact the Cashier at 217-443-8767 to resolve outstanding balances or if they are unsure about whether or not they owe a balance. This information is also available through the Jaguar Spot/Student Self Service on the DACC website.

If students come on a walk-in basis to see us 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 he/she deserves.
