Coronavirus Update

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. Overall, our goal during this time is to continue providing consistent, accurate, effective, timely, high-quality support to students. 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.

If you have any other needs, questions, or concerns, please contact Ike Smith (smithit@appstate.edu or 828-262-7171) and continue to visit our website for updates. 

Please refer to the App State Coronavirus Information website for current, official updates from the university.
