Registrar Questions


How would I be able to get into a class if it is full?

During the Registration Process, if the class is full and the waitlist option is available for that class, you might want to add yourself to the waitlist via Patriot Web: Waitlist Information.  Sometimes if a class is full, a department will give you an override which allows you to register for the class on Patriot Web.  Once classes begin, some instructors may issue force add slips for a closed class.  These can be processed at Mason Enrollment Central or the Office of the Registrar in order to enroll you in the class.


How would I utilize the Senior Citizen Waiver Program?

After successfully enrolling at Mason: (Auditing) Register for a course through Patriot Web and submit the Senior Citizen Waiver Form to Mason Enrollment Central.  Subsequently you may register for a course and have Mason Enrollment Central switch the class to audit status.
(For Credit) Register for a course through Patriot Web and submit the Senior Citizen Waiver Formalong with necessary tax documents to the Office of the Registrar.  This is required each semester you are taking classes.

For more information, see the Registration FAQ.

What is the role of the Registrar?

The Registrar can provide official transcripts and verify enrollment at the university. Even if a form says an advisor can verify the enrollment, at Mason that role only belongs to the Registrar’s Office because they have to provide the Official University seal as part of the verification.
