Academic advising at George Mason University is an integral part of the educational and developmental process that enhances student success by supporting, teaching, and connecting students to curricular and co-curricular experiences. Mason is committed to supporting holistic success across the student experience, connecting students to campus resources, and helping students set and achieve academic, career, and personal goals. Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor at least once per semester.
Students who have a declared major are assigned an academic advisor and are advised in their department. Find their contact information below by clicking “Find My Advisor” link.
Exploratory students who have not declared a major, as well as students who have been terminated from their major, will be assigned to a success coach housed in the Mason Care Network unit. The coach serves as the student’s academic advisor and success coach.
Academic advising within the Honors College complements advising provided by the student’s major and/or minor advisors. Students can find their Honors College advisor by visiting this site and searching by major. Honors College students with general advising questions can also send an email to email@example.com.
In addition to academic advising in the major, George Mason also offers pre-professional advising:
Health Professions Advising collaborates with campus colleagues to assist students in their pursuit of postgraduate work in a medical field. The Health Professions Advising Coordinator provides information and tools which will help pre-health students achieve success in the application process to a professional school.
Advising in the Patriot Pre-Law Program is designed to prepare students for the application process and for success in law school. Our approach includes helping students select courses that will best develop important skills as well as programming to prepare students for the Law School.
