Summer Classes – Important Dates and Deadlines

Summer 2018 classes have started! Here are some important things to remember as you prepare for the summer semester!

  • The Office of Student Success and Academic Services is open during the summer so you may come see an academic advisor any time. Review our website for our summer hours. It is recommended you call the office at 703-993-1880 before driving to campus as the advisors may be hosting orientation that day and may not be able to see you.
  • Scheduling an appointment with an academic advisor is an online process. To schedule a 30 minute academic advising appointment, visit http://business.gmu.edu/undergraduate/academic-advising/schedule-an-appointment/.

Important Dates

Dates listed on this page are for full semester courses only. For add/drop deadlines for courses that meet less than a full semester, see Non-standard Sections Dates.

For graduation deadlines, please go to the Graduation Timelines page.
