Due to a change in policy for Google Workspace for Education users, each USC alumni account has been converted to a restricted 2GB Gmail-only account as of March 1, 2023.
This change is impacting schools and universities worldwide, and while USC is still providing the alumni email benefit, Google’s policy update significantly limits the storage capability and available apps that we are able to offer our @alumni.usc.edu account holders. Following the initial announcement in December 2022, all active @alumni.usc.edu account holders should have received multiple communications regarding this update, which included resources for exporting data such as Google Takeout.
While your @alumni.usc.edu account previously included access to other G-suite features such as Google Drive and Google Photos, these features are no longer available after March 1 and all data that was previously stored in these features has been permanently deleted.
If you lost access to your Alumni Gmail account or if you would like to create a new account, you are able to request a replacement account through the FightOnline alumni portal.
