Undergraduate Academic Advising

Setting You Up for Success  

The Office of Student Success and Academic Services within Mason's School of Business has a staff of professional academic advisors to help you navigate your business degree requirements. 

During the summer term, we are open for advising, with adjusted Friday afternoon hours. From June 6th through August 12th, the office will close at 1:00 p.m. most Fridays. In addition, advising will be closed at various times due to New Student Orientations and other summer events. Please be sure to call or email to confirm our hours before coming in for advising. There are two ways to meet with an academic advisor:
