If you have not yet moved your ONID email over to Google Apps for OSU, please read below!
Students have been encouraged to opt in to Google since the start of Fall term, and the opt in period ends December 26th. At that point, any student who has not opted in will have their ONID mailbox moved automatically to Google between December 26th and 31st.
Following the change, students will need to login to http://oregonstate.edu/google to access their ONID email. Students may also set up access to their ONID email on their mobile devices using Google’s mobile apps.
Students are not getting “new” email addresses as a result of this move, and they will still receive email sent to their @onid.orst.edu address. The email they send from Google Apps for OSU will use their @onid.oregonstate.edu address. The bottom line is that you do not have to change the way you contact students via email.
This change gives students all the benefits that Google Apps provide: a 30 GB mailbox, advanced tools and functionality, and anytime, anywhere access through Google’s mobile apps and web interface.
The OSU Computer Helpdesk will continue to support ONID email and they also support all of Google Apps for OSU. If you or the students you work with have questions, you may contact the Helpdesk at http://oregonstate.edu/is/tss/och.
