Next Steps for Admitted Students

The Office of Admissions has cancelled all on-campus recruitment events until further notice. We encourage students to visit the virtual tour, and our team is actively working on video content and virtual options to continue to connect with students and families. Additionally, in order to give students more time to make their decisions about next fall, the Admissions Office has extended the National Candidates Reply date for Freshmen from May 1 to June 1.  The Mason Nation is an incredible place, and we look forward to sharing it with an amazing group of new Patriots this fall.
