I need help finding my advisor. Where do I start?
- The Mason Care Network (MCN) has a resource called advisor locator
I have questions regarding exceptions to academic actions such as a substitution, waiver, or appeal. How do I get started?
- The best place to start is with your advisor. They will know the proper steps and which forms you may need.
- In general, requests must be initiated by a student’s advisor or department. Once a decision has been made by your department, you may appeal at the college level. Your advisor can also assist you with this process. In some cases, an appeal can be made to the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education. Decisions made at this level are final.
- If you have already gone to your advisor, department chair, and dean and still have questions you may contact our Student Support Specialist at email@example.com. Please note the Student Support Specialist is not an advisor and cannot provide academic advising.
