Pre-registration for the fall 2016 semester is right around the corner. Undergraduate students preregister from April 5 to April 15 with seniors being April 7 and freshmen on April 15. Prior to registering, your student should visit Patriot Web to verify his or her registration time ticket and prepare by scheduling a meeting with an academic advisor. Your student can request an appointment with an advisor in person or by e-mail, phone, or through the online appointment system.
Encourage your student to reach out to an advisor early to increase the availability of meeting times prior to registration. If your student is unsure of how to contact an advisor, he or she can consult the advisor locator.
Before meeting with an advisor, your student can consult several Mason resources to review planning sheets, course offerings and degree requirements. These resources include:
- Academic Planning Sheets: This resource is especially helpful if your student has not declared a major. The academic planning sheets can assist your student in reviewing degree requirements for several different majors.
- Patriot Web: By utilizing Patriot Web, your student can view his or her transcript and review the degree evaluation. Instructions for accessing the degree evaluation planner can be found on the University Registrar website (link to: http://registrar.gmu.edu/students/degree-evaluation/degree-works/).
- Plan for Fall 2016: Also on Patriot Web, your student can plan his or her fall 2016 semester schedule by reviewing the course offerings. This information is found in the Student Services section.
If your student has questions about the registration process encourage them to visit the registrar website or contact their academic advisor to learn more. Remember, students who register on time get better opportunities to get the classes they need!
