Contact Duke TIP

The best way to reach a staff member who can assist you is to email inquiries@tip.duke.edu or call (919) 668-9100 Monday thru Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST. Our Customer Service Representatives are trained to answer all student, parent, and teacher questions, including questions about:

  • TIP programs,
  • enrollment and admissions,

Our CSRs also handle all general inquiries and can route you to the proper person to address special requests. Please note that sending a request involving the above issues to any other email inbox other than inquiries@tip.duke.edu is likely to cause a delay in processing your request.
