Admitted freshmen and transfer students must first accept the offer of admission through the university Office of Admission.
All admitted undergraduate students who have confirmed their offers of admission will be invited to attend an Orientation program prior to registering for classes.
Taking the First Step
After accepting an offer of admission, newly admitted students should contact the Graduate Program Coordinator to discuss course registration and a plan of study. The Office of the Registrar has information about enrollment procedures, registration and drop and add deadlines, and course offerings by semester.
Accessing University Services
In order to access university services and resources, students must first enroll in coursework through Patriot Web. Once they have enrolled, they will be able to obtain a Mason Photo ID and parking permit.
The College of Health and Human Services hosts a Graduate Student Orientation for all newly admitted students in the fall and spring. Information about the event is sent out to students via email approximately one month prior to the date of the event. The Graduate Student Orientation page has information on the college orientation as well as orientations held by individual graduate programs.
Communicating and Staying Connected
Please update your address and other contact information in Patriot Web to insure you receive all relevant communications from the college and university. All email correspondence from the university will be sent to your official Mason email account, so please activate it and check it regularly.
Students should also sign up for Mason Alert, a service provided by the university to keep students informed of emergency information for all campuses and the surrounding area.
