CVPA Graduate Admissions is a self-managed system administered by the University’s Graduate Admissions Office: http://admissions.gmu.edu/grad/. We encourage interested applicants to open their applications online, provide correct and current information, and check the status of their applications on a continual basis. Each applicant is assigned a G number once an application is opened; this is a Mason identification number that will be used for all University communications. Once accepted, applicants who file an “Intent to Enroll” must submit a $200 deposit, which will be applied to their first semester’s tuition.
George Mason University will verify completion of the requirements of a Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) state-approved preparation program at the graduate or undergraduate level. Such verification does not guarantee the issuance of Virginia Collegiate Professional, Postgraduate Professional, or Pupil Personnel license from the Commonwealth of Virginia. It is solely the student’s responsibility to comply with all requirements for licensure (PDF file) by the Commonwealth. Under Virginia law a social security number is required for licensure.
