An office of University Life serving as Mason’s College Access Program since 1987.

Producing civically engaged first-generation college bound students who value learning and are actively pursuing higher education.


This Summer Academy, EIP Students embraced and embodied our 2017 theme; i-excel. Through exposure to new career options, rigorous coursework, and overall skill-building, our students spent three weeks preparing themselves to confront both the new school year and the future ahead. The students were able to build LEGO cars with BAE Systems, listen to professionals from around Virginia during career panels, and even dissect a range of different specimens. We hope that the students retained all of the information provided to them this Summer Academy and take it with them as they continue to excel throughout their high school journey.



Celebrate with us! George Mason University, Early Identification Program has been selected as the Virginia Career Preparedness Award recipient for the ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign.
