Welcome to The James Center for Student Success & Advising
The James Center continues to serve students during the semester break and is operating remotely. Please click here for information on our Winter Break operations.
In order to practice effective social distancing, the James Center for Student Success and Advising will now operate virtually during our normal hours of 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday to Friday.

We will engage with students through whatever means they may have access to and do our best to connect them with whatever resources they may need to navigate these rapidly changing circumstances while continuing their academic success.
