Orientation Advising

Welcome, new students, to the BAS program at Mason! We are so excited you are joining us!

This page is intended to be a supplemental resource to New Student Orientation. The information provided here is in addition to, not a replacement for, orientation.

First things first, you’ll want to identify your academic advisor. They will be your go-to person for all things BAS at Mason.

Depending on which concentration you’re pursuing, your resources will be a bit different.

This page designed specifically for students in: Cyber Security, Cloud Computing, and Technology & Innovation. If you are in a different concentration, please contact your advisor.


If you need a refresher on Orientation, you can review the presentation.



The best way to determine which courses you need to take is to review your degree evaluation in DegreeWorks.  Once you determine which courses you need, you’ll register in PatriotWeb.  Waitlists are available for some, but not all, classes. If you receive a prerequisite error, email your advisor; they may be able to help. When you’re finished registering, email your advisor again so they can look over your choices and ensure you registered for classes you need.
