Personalized Support

Let Us Guide You On The Road to Success

Our advisors are dedicated to helping you reach your academic goals.

As a new student, you'll be matched with an advisor who'll help you create a specialized plan within the Honors College program. That advisor will become a lifeline through your first year of compressed Mason Core requirements. Throughout your undergraduate career, they'll provide the insight and guidance you need to be competitive for fellowships, scholarships, and other academic achievements. Schedule your appointments at least once a semester to stay on track.

Honors College advisors help students navigate curriculum requirements that can be challenging.

Outside the Classroom

The Honors College's unique curriculum positions you to be prepared for opportunities. If you're interested in an internship, fellowship, or are thinking ahead to graduate school, we have the resources to help.

Fellowship and Career Support

Mason is ideally located for access to the world's best market for a number of growing employment fields. You'll spend your undergraduate years with access to a global city; Washington's culture of diplomacy, collaboration, and inclusion inspires many to reach for higher goals and strive for greater answers. When it's time to step outside Mason for an internship, a fellowship, or independent study, we have the resources to get you going. The Honors College is home to the Office of Fellowships, which links students to prestigious programs such as the Smithsonian, Fulbright, Udall and Woodrow Wilson fellowships. 

Peer Mentors and Resident Advisors

No one knows the Honors College student experience better than another student. The trained peer mentors within the Honors College are unmatched across the university. If you have a question about your research project, or need tips and guidance in studying for a final, you'll have someone to provide timely, encouraging, and practical advice. 

If you chose to live in the Honors College Living Learning Community (LLC), you'll have the residential and life-skill support of a trained resident advisor. This person is your home-based resource for your residence hall and LLC activities.
