New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation is the first step for any incoming student coming to George Mason University.

Orientation is required of all new students to Mason and is critical to a successful start to your career. Make sure to register as soon as possible.
At your Mason Orientation, you will be advised by academic advisors from the Office of Student Success and Academic Services.
