Email, Google Apps @ Illinois, Moving to Google Apps

This page contains information about moving email from a campus email system into Google Apps @ Illinois.

Illinois undergraduate students are eligible for Google Apps @ Illinois accounts, including Gmail.

Illinois faculty, retired faculty, staff, and graduate students are eligible for Google Apps @ Illinois accounts, and are encouraged to use Google Apps applications like Docs and Sheets for collaboration within campus data security guidelines (note that Google Apps is not currently approved to store FERPA and HIPAA data). However, Tech Services encourages them not to use Gmail; instead, Tech Services encourages use of Microsoft Exchange email for university purposes.
