Support

Mason recognizes that success in your studies can depend on the support you get outside the classroom. That's why we have a dedicated unit, the Office of Military Services (OMS), to fulfill the unique needs of the military community.

Getting by with a Little Help from Your Friends

OMS works with members of Mason Nation to create and adapt strategies to help you achieve your academic and career goals while enhancing your college experience. We do that by offering:

  • Free counseling services from professional clinical psychologists, social workers, counselors, learning specialists, and a psychiatrist through individual and group counseling, workshops, online self-help, and community education programs. Contact Counseling and Psychological Services at 703-993-2380.
