For example, If your name is Frank Smith and your Vnumber is V00998345 then your email address is:
Sign in to Gmail directly by going to http://trojanmail.vsu.edu. Alternatively, a Google Workspace tile has been added to the All Apps area within www.microsoft365.com. Clicking on the application tile will launch Google Workspace.
You may notice email messages missing from your account. Your email is not lost. Transition of your email from Microsoft to Google will take 1-3 days. Your email account will be fully functional while we transfer your email.
VSU does not support email clients and recommends that you use the Gmail web interface. Students that choose to configure an email client to check email will need to configure those settings to use Google Gmail settings.

The primary drive in moving to Google Workspace was to improve reliability and ease of use for student email. This move also adds more applications and services for your use.
No. VSU will continue to use portal.office.com to integrate with VSU applications and to provide office software for download/installation at no charge to the student.
It's okay if you already have a personal Gmail account. Any of your personal Google accounts will not, in any way, be affiliated with your new VSU Google Workspace account. You may need to switch users in your browser window when selecting accounts.
This is not recommended. Students are responsible for the receipt of email sent from the university. We cannot guarantee the delivery of forwarded email and this could have a negative impact on your academic pursuits at VSU.
