Graduates Techlist

Congratulations!

To make a smooth transition from student to Macalester alum, review the information about the lifespan of your Mac email, docs, stored files, and other Google Apps accounts.

How to keep the data you’ve accumulated as a student

Your Macalester accounts (e.g., Google Apps, 1600grand, Moodle, etc.) will be closed as of the last day to add/drop/audit a fall class. If you have email and data in your Macalester Google Apps account or files stored in your personal folder that you want to save, make sure you retrieve them before your accounts are closed by following the steps in the ITS Graduates Techlist.
