Now it’s time to build your team!  Your success starts with you, but you don’t have to do it alone.  Use the links below to identify who can help you with academic advising, paying for college, getting you involved on campus, and supporting you in those tough classes.

Academic Advisor

Your advisor is your guide through your major curriculum and your experience in the academic community here at Mason and they can do much more than help you pick out classes.  Advisors can connect you to co-curricular experiences like research opportunities and study abroad programs that will fit into your schedule as well as extracurricular opportunities like joining a club or participating in intramurals.  And if you are having a challenging semester, they can get you connected to resources and put you back on track.
