The CHHS Office of Student Affairs (OSA) works with all CHHS academic departments and university student support services to ensure a positive experience for our students throughout their academic careers. Our goals are to treat every student fairly and equitably and to ensure the academic integrity of the degrees conferred by George Mason University in the College of Health and Human Services.
We are involved with students from recruitment, orientation, and academic advising, through degree-conferral. The OSA also includes the CHHS Office of Admissions, which offers information sessions to prospective students, processes applications to graduate programs and the BSN nursing program, and answers questions from prospective students.
Academic advisors in OSA support students in their transition to Mason; connect them to campus resources and involvement opportunities; teach students to engage in a process of self-reflection, guiding them to find degree pathways that match their interests, skills, and abilities; help students function successfully within the university; and assist students in developing and pursuing academic and professional goals.
OSA, located in Suite 1000 of Peterson Family Health Sciences Hall, is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Advising appointments can be made by using GMU SSC Campus, calling 703-993-1901 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, current students are welcome to drop by during our scheduled walk-in hours on Mondays from 1–4 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Walk-in hours for prospective students (non-Mason students who are planning to apply to the university) are available on the first Tuesday of each month from 1–4 p.m. Please bring unofficial copies of your transcripts and a list of your questions in order to make the most of your time with the advisor.
