Important Student Google Apps Update Information

On Wednesday, Feb. 13, some Google apps (email, Contacts) will be turned off in the domain.  This means you will no longer have access to any old email messages.  If you have data there that has not already been migrated, please move what you want to keep to your domain.  Although this data was migrated for you, you may want to review to make sure nothing has changed since the migration (i.e., adding a contact).  Drive, Calendar and Talk will remain active to allow for the continued use of Google+.

Second, by no later than March 11, 2013 you must move any other data for the rest of your Google Apps from the domain to your account.  These apps include, but are not limited to:

  • Drive
  • Picasa Web albums
  • YouTube
  • Google Sites
  • Google Blogs
  • Google Analytics

Instructions for how you can move your data are available at  All data must be moved to your account no later than March 11, 2013.  All services within the domain will be shut-off at that point, and you will no longer have access to that data.
