As soon as you are admitted to the program, please activate your Patriot Pass password and your Masonlive email account. See http://masonlive.gmu.edu/.
As stated in the Masonlive FAQ, “Your George Mason University MASONLIVE email account is the official means of campus communication. Important information regarding registration, billing, coursework, and other university announcements will only be delivered to this account.”
Please use your Mason email address for all correspondence with faculty, staff, and other university employees. Official announcements will go to that address, and faculty are encouraged to send anything that could constitute a student record only to Mason addresses.
Once you have your Mason email working, please subscribe to the history graduate LISTSERV:
