All students are assigned a William James College e-mail account. This is your lifeline to all electronic school-wide announcements and is the preferred method of communication with faculty and staff. You will receive instructions on how to activate your e-mail account and we strongly encourage you to check your e-mail regularly for important messages and updates. Your email user id and password is also your user id and password for access to MyCampus.
MyCampus is William James College’s intranet system that allows students, faculty and staff to share information and workflow, thereby providing a one-stop electronic portal for e-mail, course readings, discussions, registration and more. MyCampus is designed to provide students with a single site where they can communicate with faculty, obtain course information, access event calendars, connect with Wimba, (a distance learning system), and receive news via bulletin boards and news forums.
William James College provides wireless internet access throughout the entire campus. Our wireless network utilizes the IEEE 802.11g and IEEE 802.11a LAN standards and students may access the internet, MyCampus, or wirelessly print a document using any mobile computing device equipped with a wireless LAN adapter.Students who enroll in a program that utilizes a blended delivery format will receive hands-on training on system navigation and course access during Fundamentals Week.
William James College has several internal systems that each play a unique role in

the systems with their name and general functions. We hope this will
help you become more familiar with the systems, as you will be using

When you login to Moodle each semester, you will automatically see links to the courses in which you are currently enrolled.
