While starting your academic career at a new university is very exciting, it can also be a little overwhelming. Our goal is to make your transition successful.

New Student Orientation

Orientation is required of all new students to Mason and is critical to a successful start to your college career. Make sure to register as soon as possible.

At your Mason Orientation, you will be advised by academic advisors from the Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution. We will begin important discussions around academic, college, and career goals, select classes, and begin to lay the groundwork for formulating plans to meet your goals.
