Message Services - Google Apps for Education (GAE)

At the request of Clemson University Student Government, we have partnered with Google to bring Google Apps for Education to students. Google Apps was rolled out on September 17, 2007 which allowed students to use Google’s web-based email offering, Google Mail, with their Clemson.edu email address.

Google Apps for Education accounts includes email, Google Talk, Google Drive, Google Sites and Google Calendar service for students and employees. Other services may be added in the future as they are available and appropriate.

*All other Google services are turned off for legal reasons*

As part of the Google arrangement, Clemson employees may also take advantage of Google Apps including Google Mail with their Clemson.edu email address. CCIT recommends and supports Outlook as the institution’s primary email service; but because no single email service is 100% reliable, you may want to add Google Mail as an alternate offsite email service.

To access your Clemson Gmail, simply visit 'gmail.com' and login with your 'username@g.clemson.edu' and password. Detailed instructions can be found here.

Terms of Service

If you choose to use Google Apps, and especially if you choose to use Google Apps as your primary messaging and calendaring service, please keep the following in mind:

  • Google Apps is hosted and supported by Google. Very limited support is available through CCIT.
  • All data will be stored by Google and CCIT will be unable to access and/or restore deleted data.
  • Google Apps will not be able to access Clemson resources such as meeting rooms. Calendaring for these resources is available only by using Exchange.
