  • Individual users will not receive an email notification but on Thursday May 16, you should log into Google with your new credentials (
  • Do not use an alias like to login.


This change is part of the rebranding project and the next step in adopting as our primary email identity:

  • This change only affects Google Workspace; the primary email address in other systems (e.g. Banner, Canvas, Docusign etc) is not being changed.
  • Everyone will continue to have an email alias so that mail sent to the old domain will continue to be delivered.


If you used your credentials to login to third-party applications using the Continue with Google button, that login method will no longer work.

You can either:
