IMPORTANT: Current history majors are assigned to advisors based on student last name and should choose the matching advisor. The exceptions are History majors who are ROTC students or who started at Mason before Fall 2012 – these students should choose “History advising Last name Q-Z” and see Dr. Collins.

History majors with general requests such as study abroad, course elsewhere, credit overload, or transfer credit re-evaluation requests choose “History Approval/General” and schedule with Dr. Collins.

History majors re-enrolling or returning from suspension choose “History Approval/General” and schedule with either Dr. Collins or Carrie Grabo. 

  1. Confirm location as “History and Art History,” select the advisor, and click “Next.”
  2. Identify the day/time you would like to meet with the advisor. For walk-in hours if posted (click “View walk-in hours”), no appointment is necessary. For scheduled appointments, after you select and confirm your time you will automatically receive an email notification as well as a reminder. You may also enter your cell phone number for a text reminder.
