COVID-19 Update: George Mason University has made the decision to move Orientation online for Summer 2020. In this new virtual format, students will continue to register for an Orientation date. Some aspects of the Virtual Student Orientation experience will occur on the same day as the scheduled in-person program, while other components will be pre-recorded to view at their own pace. We recognize the important role of families and will offer a virtual Family Orientation experience at no charge. General information about these new Orientation processes are communicated on this website, while specific next steps will be communicated directly to registered students and families via e-mail. Welcome to the Mason Family and we look forward to serving you virtually this summer! More information about Mason’s response to COVID-19 is available at http://gmu.edu/coronavirus.
