1– ACCEPT YOUR OFFER OF NON-DEGREE ADMISSION.
Admitted Non-Degree students must accept their admission through the Mason Admissions Portal to register for courses.
2– ACTIVATE PATRIOT PASS:
After accepting your admission, you will receive an email within 2 to 3 business days with further instructions on how to claim and create your Patriot Pass account on the Mason password website.
3‒ ACCESS YOUR MASON STUDENT EMAIL ACCOUNT.
Once your Patriot Pass account is activated, you can access your Mason student email account. Please follow the 1st Login Instructions to get started.
IMPORTANT: Please note that once your Mason Student Email Account is created, all official communications from the university will be sent to you on this account. You will NOT be able to opt-out of receiving messages from the university through your Mason student email account. Your Mason student email will be your primary email account while you attend Mason to receive updates from the university, communicate with your professors, participate in student involvement activities, etc.
4– REGISTER FOR COURSES AND PAY TUITION VIA PATRIOT WEB
Next you will want to register for your courses through PatriotWeb. If your course requires a pre-requisite, contact the department which offers the course to request a course override. The department may require a copy of your unofficial transcript or a syllabus to demonstrate that you have met the pre-requisite requirement. You can find a wealth of information for new non-degree students on the University Registrar's website.
Lastly, you will want to make sure that you have paid for your course(s). Information regarding payments and third party billing is available on Mason's student accounts site.
The Office of Student Accounts may also be reached for questions at 703-993-2484.

Virginia law requires all admitted university students to submit immunization documentation. A hold will be placed on your account and a late fee assessed if you do not submit your complete immunization records by the posted deadline.
Please visit Student Health Services to obtain critical information and mandatory immunization forms. Your completed immunization form should be sent directly to Student Health Services. If you have trouble accessing the website, please contact Student Health Services at 703-993-2135 or email@example.com.
