Academic Advising

Help available when you need it

Appointments with your academic advisor will begin during your first few days on campus and continue to build a solid groundwork for a successful, supported academic career. Your advisor will not only help you to transition into the Honors College, they will be a go-to resource when it comes to navigating important decisions about your studies. Their advice represents an extra boost to your advancement beyond traditional advising available through your major, so make sure to touch base with them at least once a semester. 

Fall 2021 Advising

Fall 2021 advising in the Honors College will be primarily virtual with very limited in person appointments.  Students are encouraged to email their advisors for advising questions, or to set up an advising appointment.  Advisors can be found below, by major.  For general advising questions, please email hcadvise@gmu.edu.  When emailing your advisor or hcadvise@gmu.edu, please include your G #.  Be advised that it can take advisors 3-5 business days to respond to your inquiry.  Please do not send multiple emails. 

If you have questions for the Office of Financial Aid, Student Accounts, or the Registrar’s office, please visit the Mason Student Success Center webpage.  You can submit your questions through their online portal.
