Want to graduate on time? Your academic advisor is the person on campus who can help you to stay on track for graduation. We encourage students to meet with their assigned advisor at least once a semester to receive advice on academic planning and how to make the most out of your time at Mason. Appointments can be made using the instructions found here.
Your CLS advisor can:
Help you understand degree requirements
Discuss and help you declare a concentration and/or minor
Help you run a degree evaluation and map out the road to graduation
Offer information on opportunities to enhance your degree including, but not limited to, internships, study abroad, honors in the major, and beyond
Discuss research opportunities, and graduate and professional school
