Patriot Plus Program (PPP) students take a set of required courses specifically designed to improve your ability to learn in English. For the first two semesters after admission, PPP students will take English for Academic Purposes courses as well as regular Mason courses that count towards Mason Core or major requirement. At the end of the second semester, a Progression Committee, consisting of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, the PPP/EAP Coordinator (Faculty), and Academic Affairs Staff, will review the results of individual students. Students who successfully meet the requirements of PPP at the end of second semester will progress into the major. In the case that a student does not meet all the requirements for progression, the student may be permitted to study for one additional semester in the PPP as a PPP Extender or dismissed from the program.
