Guaranteed Admission Applicants to GMU
Tips for Navigating the Process
1. Make sure you are eligible for Guaranteed Admission to Mason on the NOVA transfer website. Remember, you must apply online for NOVA graduation before deadline dates: Fall – October 1; Spring – March 1; Fall – June 1.
2. Submit your Mason application online before sending any support documentation such as transcripts, to ensure that supporting documentation will be properly filed with your application. Note that Mason’s application deadline dates are still in effect for Guaranteed Admission applicants.
3. Request official transcripts from NOVA and other colleges and universities that you have attended. Your NOVA transcript will be sent to Mason electronically on the next business day following your request. Your NOVA email account will receive an email confirmation when your transcript has been sent.
Mason requires a transcript directly from each college you have attended, no matter how many classes you took at a particular school, even if you withdrew from all classes. Mason requests that you allow several weeks for them to process supporting documentation and attach it to your application.
4. If you have any questions during this time, contact Mason Admissions Office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Always include your Mason G number (G#) in all communication. Please make sure you provide Mason an email address that you check often.
5. Don’t forget to request a final NOVA transcript online after your degree has been conferred. Check your student record in NOVAConnect (My NOVA) to be sure your degree award has been posted before ordering your final transcript. Remember that it may take up to two months after the end of the term for your degree to be posted on your transcript. Mason understands and accommodates our degree-awarding process.
