Student & Career Services
Students bring a blend of professional and academic backgrounds to the George Mason School of Public Policy. The School has made a unique commitment to providing professionally delivered academic services that will meet students’ individual needs. These services provide the tools that help students effectively navigate their program and maximize their educational opportunities.
We are committed to our students’ academic and professional success and work with students to help them achieve their goals.
SPP tuition for in-state students is approximately half the cost of the tuition at private competitors in the D.C. area.
Professional development, student success, and employer information sessions are offered each semester in the School of Public Policy. A calendar of these events can be found at policy.gmu.edu/calendar.
Students can meet regularly with their academic and career advisors to make the most of their graduate experience. For more resources, please visit policy.gmu.edu/spp101.
More than 70% of SPP students are employed while pursuing their degrees -- classes are offered in the late afternoon and early evening to accommodate full- and part-time students.
