Google Apps user:

Your @worcester.edu Google Apps account will be converted and start working more like a full Google Account on or about March 1, 2011.  This will provide you access to many more applications from Google. As a byproduct, it will require that an email address is only associated with one Google account.

If you currently have two accounts with Google with identical email addresses:

1.   The first account is your worcester.edu email address assigned to you by Worcester State University and is managed by your worcester.edu administrator. You may be using this account to access services available to your organization such as Gmail, Calendar, and Docs.

2.   The second account is a conflicting Google Account that you created using your worcester.edu email address to access the rest of Google's services such as Blogger, Reader, or Picasa (which until now, had not been available from accounts managed by our organization).

Once your organization-managed account has been converted to work more like a full Google Account, Google will assign a new temporary name to your conflicting personal (non-WSU) Google Account. You will continue to be able to access your personal Google Account after the account is renamed, and data in your personal Google Account is safe.

Step 1: Visit www.google.com/accounts and sign in with your personal Google Account 
Step 2: Click "Change email" under "Personal Settings" 
Step 3: Enter a different email address where you can receive mail, enter your password, and click "Save email address" 
Step 4: Check your other email address and click the link in the verification message from Google to confirm your change

If you don't have a different email address (personal non-WSU Gmail account) where you can receive mail, you can resolve the conflict by setting up an @gmail.com address.

Words of caution

Once your @ worcester.edu account has transitioned, you will notice a few key changes that may be different than the behavior you are used to:

  • Google services you visit while using your organization-managed Google Apps account will automatically sign you in with this account. Be mindful of the data you're saving in your @worcester.edu, which is subject to worcester.edu 's terms and conditions.
  • The new services available from your WSU-managed account will initially not contain any information. Existing account data from your personal Google Account can still be found in that account, which you can continue to access after you assign/create a new email address to it.

If you have any questions, please contact the IT Help Desk.
