Integrative Studies

Students, please follow the steps below to make an Advising Appointment prior to Orientation. 

1. Check to see if your credits have transferred by checking your Unofficial Transcript through Patriot Web --> Student Services --> Student Records --> View Your Unofficial Transcript (select the current semester) --> Display Mason Transcript.

If you do not see that courses have been evaluated yet, review your transferring courses in which you received a grade of C or better and make a list of Mason equivalents using the Transfer Credit MatrixIf you do not bring this list with you to advising, we will not be able to discuss your remaining degree requirements or graduation timeline.

2. Please write down any questions you have and bring those as well.

3. Make an appointment: Please email us at sisinfo@gmu.edu to request schedule a Pre-Orientation Advising Appointment.
