Coming soon: Slug G Suite

slug-g-suite

UCSC Google Apps for Prior Students

Beginning November 14, 2019: Slug G Suite will allow UC Santa Cruz students to keep their UCSC Google Apps services after they leave our campus. This includes access to their @ucsc.edu email account, Google Drive, Calendar, Groups, Sites and more. In addition, UCSC Google accounts for some prior students and alumni will be restored. See the Slug G Suite Eligibility section below for details.

The expansion of UCSC Google Apps services will improve our campus’s ability to engage with prior students regardless of their graduation status, streamline our communication and outreach efforts to alumni and those wishing to return to UCSC, and offer an enhanced user experience by simplifying access to these frequently-requested services.

 


Slug G Suite Eligibility

All Slug G Suite users are required to adhere to UCSC policies. Misuse may result in the loss of access privileges and/or criminal prosecution under applicable statutes.

Students and alumni that left UCSC in fall 2018 or later will have uninterrupted access to their current UCSC email and Google Apps account. ITS has already been in contact with these prior students in spring 2019; additional communications are planned for October 2019.

Students and alumni who left UC Santa Cruz before fall 2018 and had a UCSC Google account will have their Google Apps and email service restored on November 14, 2019. ITS will be collaborating with Alumni Engagement to reach out to as many of these prior students as possible throughout 2020.

Alumni who opted in to Email Forwarding will regain access to their accounts directly. The Email Forwarding service will be discontinued when Slug G Suite goes into effect.

Prior students and alumni who left UC Santa Cruz after 1986 and never had a UCSC Google account may become eligible for the Slug G Suite service in the future. This service will not be available in November 2019. More information will be available in early 2020.

Prior students and alumni who left UC Santa Cruz before 1986 will not be eligible for a Slug G Suite account.

 


Accessing Slug G Suite

Prior students must know their CruzID and Gold password in order to access Slug G Suite. Provide your @ucsc.edu email address when accessing a Google Apps service, then log in with your CruzID and Gold password. Depending on your current affiliation with UC Santa Cruz, Multi-Factor Authentication may also be required.

I opted-in to Email Forwarding when I graduated. What will happen to my account?
