Pre-Orientation Advising for New Students

Welcome to the College of Humanities and Social Sciences!

Our academic advisors look forward to meeting you and supporting you throughout your studies at Mason. During orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet your major advisor and develop a course plan for your first semester.

All of our programs are able to provide pre-orientation advising for new transfer students, and some may provide pre-orientation advising for new freshmen. You must follow the specific appointment scheduling instructions listed for your major below, as this is how your advisors have prepared to meet with you. 

How should you prepare for pre-orientation advising?
