Upcoming Events

Volgenau Events

Prospective graduate students have many opportunities to see what programs are on offer and learn more about the admissions process at CEC graduate events.

Sessions for Prospective Students

The college hosts several information sessions for prospective graduate students in person and online throughout the academic year.

Although attendance at a session is not required for application, it is highly recommended. This is your opportunity to meet the administrative and academic staff members who will assist you in the pursuit of your graduate course work and degree.

Prospective graduate students must meet all the university's requirements and deadlines. Mason alums have the option of pursuing a fast-track admission path.

Upcoming General Information Sessions

Registration opens approximately two weeks prior to each event. 

For questions regarding graduate programs and the admissions process, please contact our office at cecgrad@gmu.edu. All sessions are Eastern Standard Time.

Fall recruitment event schedule will be updated in July.
