Advising

Advising

Advisors are key resources to help you navigate the university, work toward completion of your degree requirements, and explore opportunities to diversify your portfolio of experiences to gain future employment or entry into advanced studies.

Although advising is not mandatory for some programs, it is highly recommended that you meet with your advisor at least once per semester to review degree progress and plan for future semesters. If you choose not to meet with your advisor, you may miss key information and opportunities to make your experience at Mason a more valuable one. Friends and other CEHD students are great resources, but they are not reliable sources of information for your individual degree requirements and career trajectory. A reliable resource is an official university employee and the subject matter expert on the question at hand (i.e., Licensure, Endorsements, Academic Advising, Career Services, Admissions, Registrar, ITS Support, etc.). When in doubt, ask your advisor!
