Blue Book


Welcome to Duke.

The Blue Book outlines everything students need to do and know before they arrive at Duke in August. This digital guide includes deadlines for housing, registration, and immunizations as well as an overview of the academic advising model, pre-orientation opportunities, and so much more!

The Class of 2025 Blue Book will be posted and shared widely in summer 2021.


**As the global COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, all information and dates remain subject to change.**


Additionally, New Student Programs launches a webinar series with accompanying videos called the Summer Transition Series to supplement the information in the Blue Book and help students make the needed decisions beginning classes in August. The 2021 Summer Transitions Series will begin airing summer 2021.
