Orientation

COVID-19 International Orientation Update: With the health and safety of  the university community being our main priority, George Mason University has made the decision to move our international student orientation online for Spring 2022. Though a virtual format, students must still register for Orientation. On Monday, January 3, 2022, we will be releasing pre-recorded virtual content for all new international students to review at their own pace (Freshman and Transfer students will receive access to the orientation starting Monday, November 1, 2021). All content should be viewed and the final assessment should be completed no later than Sunday, January 23, 2022. Information about the virtual orientation process will be sent to students who register for orientation via their Masonlive email. Virtual orientation is mandatory for ALL new students (Undergraduate, Masters, and Doctoral) except for Antonio Scalia Law School students. If you are an incoming Antonio Scalia Law School student, please contact Aleksandra Melnikova (amelniko@gmu.edu) to schedule an appointment.

Welcome to Mason and we are very excited for you to be joining our dynamic international student community!
