Each student is responsible for knowing the rules, regulations, requirements and academic policies of the university. All academic policies and guidelines are outlined in the University Catalog, however students should consult their academic advisor/success coach for guidance with regard to any requests for exceptions of George Mason University policies.
To request exceptions to policies or appeals, students with declared majors (or whom are undeclared within a school/college, such as VSE Undeclared) must contact the appropriate Student Academic Affairs offices for their respective programs, and can also ask questions of their academic advisor. If a student does not know to which school/college their major belongs, please reference the Advisor Locator.
If you are an undergraduate exploratory or undeclared student (as stated on your transcript) your academic request or appeal begins with your success coach in the Mason Care Network. For non-degree, guest matriculant or exchange students, you can email Undergraduate Education directly.
