For Newly Admitted Students

Welcome to the Department of History and Art History! We look forward to working together to craft an exciting, meaningful, and successful undergraduate degree program that helps you fulfill your goals. 

In addition to signing up for your new student orientations through the admissions materials you have received, all new students are asked to contact us for pre-orientation academic advising. This is especially true for incoming transfer students, who will be able to register for classes as soon as they have received advising. (Freshmen will be able to register as of their orientation date.)

For Art History pre-orientation advising, contact Dr. Vanessa Schulman, Art History Undergraduate Director, at vschulma@gmu.edu.

For History pre-orientation advising, contact either Ms. Carrie Grabo, Undergraduate Coordinator, at cgrabo1@gmu.edu or Dr. Jane Hooper, History Undergraduate Director, at jhooper3@gmu.edu.

To prepare for your advising session, use the resources links below. Start with the Art History or History freshman or transfer registration guide, as appropriate.
