We offer a separate Family Orientation program during our freshman and daytime transfer Orientation sessions. Although we do not offer a family program during our transfer evening session, families are still welcome to attend.
The overall objective of STEP is to give students curricular and co-curricular support prior to and during their tenure as Mason students. Participants of this incentive-based program are given a jump-start to their scholastic endeavors through academic preparation, career exploration, cultural awareness opportunities, service learning projects, and empowerment services. Students currently enrolled in STEP will be asked to attend a specific Orientation session together.
One of the best ways to stay connected as a Mason family is to join the dues- free Mason Family Association. Once you’ve signed up you will begin to receive weekly e-enwsletters and other important e-mail communication from OFPS. Your memebership ensures you stay connected to Mason! Join the Family Association.
Students will complete course registration at the end of the Orientation program that they attend. Our Patriot Leader staff will be available to help your student navigate the registration process so he/she is comfortable using the system to register for classes in future semesters.
