Google Opt-In and Final Migration

The University’s migration to Google is coming to a close. The last day to Opt-In will be December 19th.

There will be no Opt-In over the Holiday break, or the first week in January.

If you wish to make the switch prior to the Holiday break please remember:

  • If you are not comfortable configuring your Outlook client, please contact the Help Desk BEFORE you opt in to schedule a technician to help you through the configuration after we migrate you.
  • After the migration Voice Mails will no longer go to your inbox. You will need to check them on your phone or dial (570) 408- 6245(MAIL) and follow the prompts.
  • Follow the instructions on this site: http://www.wilkes.edu/google to complete the opt-in.

If you choose to wait for the final migration on the weekend of January 5th and 6th please note:

  • During the holiday break and the first week in January, your email will operate without change. Your Voicemails will continue to be sent to your email box.
  • Starting at 12:00am on January 5th we will be migrating the remainder of accounts to Google Apps. The migration is scheduled to run until 8:00am on Monday January 7th.
