I upgraded my domain from 2000 to 2003, I then tried to join the 2012 server to the domain. It says the domain is still 2000. When I look in the domain it says it's level is 2003.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
SR

There is a difference between forest functional level and domain functional level. BOTH must be set to 2003 before you can add 2012.
