Advising

Academic advising is an integral resource for your academic journey, and your advisor is here to support you as you pursue path of study.  

To stay on track with your studies and make the most of your Mason experience, check in with your advisor at least once a semester. 

Meet with an academic advisor to discuss:

  • Course registration, academic challenges, academic planning, and course recommendations
  • Campus opportunities and resources
  • Ways to integrate internships and independent research into your academic plan

Track your Degree Progress

While contacting your academic advisor at least once a semester is important to ensure you are on track for graduation, you can also check your degree requirements and progress towards completion at any time by running your own degree evaluation through Degree Works.
