Undergraduate Academic Advising

ATTENTION: All advising will be offered online until further notice. Please contact Laura Scott (lscott@gmu.edu) with questions.

Keeping Track of Your Progress

Meeting with your advisor at least once a semester is the best way to make sure you're on track for academic success, but you can also monitor your progress on Patriot Web by running your own degree evaluation through Degree Works.

Email advising is available from Laura Ellen Scott, Monday through Friday at lscott@gmu.edu. Please write from your Mason account only.
