I'm leaving HC, what about my Google data?

If you are leaving your HC education experience, your cloud accounts (from Google and Microsoft Office 365) will stay active thru the next full semester following your departure. (eg: If you leave at the end of a spring semester you will have access to all your info through the end of the next fall semester.)
For faculty and staff 
who are leaving HC employment, your account will remain active for as long as your supervisor has authorized it with a date given to the I.T. Department.

To take data you have stored on your Google drive with you, there are several options:
  • For a single file or folder, the easiest and simplest way is to download that document or folders, and then upload them to another Google account or where ever you want them.

  • But with Google you can transfer all your gmail and  all your Google Drive data to a personal Google drive.
    Note: that with your Google .edu account, you have unlimited storage.  With a personal Google account, you only get 15 Gigs for free. For that reason and just general cleanup you might want to delete unwanted files from your HC Google Drive, before you do this process to transfer all that info to your personal drive.

Related notes:
  • If you have files or folders in G drive that you want to transfer to someone else at Hesston College, you can transfer ownership of the files to them. However, you can't assign ownership to someone outside of our domain. 

  • If you are fac/staff, you can also ask IT to transfer ownership of Google Docs to another person at the college.
