Student Accounts Office

The mission of the Student Accounts Office is to provide excellent service for our students, staff, and faculty, while maintaining internal controls that ensure financial transactions are accurately processed and proper records are maintained.

We look forward to seeing you at Mason, whether in person or virtually, and are here to assist where we can. If you need assistance related to a Student Accounts Office question (tuition/fee charges, payment information, 1098-T), your first stop is the Mason Student Services Center. The MSSC team is cross trained to provide help to new and continuing students on matters related to billing, as well as registration, enrollment, financial aid, academic records and other student support services.

MSSC services are available on both a walk-up and virtual basis. For more information, please select how you would like to be serviced below:
