First Steps for Newly Admitted Students

Newly Admitted Students

To ensure you have properly activated your student record (necessary before you can enroll in courses!) and have access to all online university systems for students, be sure to follow the Next Steps for Admitted Graduate Students

Please ALWAYS use your secure Mason email address for all correspondence with faculty, staff, and other university employees. All official university, departmental, and course announcements will go to that secure address only.

Graduate Student Life

For administrative information not directly related to the history program, such as parking or library study space, please visit the webpage of the Office of Graduate Student Life,

At the start of the fall term, that office offers orientation events for newly admitted students. The history MA program does not offer a specific orientation, since we have found it impossible to schedule one that most students can attend.
