'student eMail accounts' to our campus.
At that time, we discovered a powerful 'Intranet-like' integrated suite of tools being offered educators and their students for FREE - giving each of our users over 7Giga Byes of storage!
It didn't take long before South seriously got on board and by March 27th 2007, SouthSeattle.edu eMail (a.k.a. Google Apps for Education, GA4E) was officially launched and it has become a foundational set of educational online tools used by faculty, staff and students across our campus and the district since!
Many colleges, including our sister campuses, Central (SCCC) and North (NSCC), have adopted Google Apps for Education (GA4E) for their student eMail and online educational tools, as well!

Q: If the campus website is scheduled to be offline (for maintenance, etc.) will my Google Apps for Education (GA4E) Account be offline?

Please review/print our SSCC GA4E support page for your records
Q: What is the difference between a public Google Account and an SSCC Google Apps for Education (GA4E) Account?
A: Google Acct vs Google Apps - explained here :)
Q: How secure is Google's email? Will my account have advertising? How much storage space will I get?

A: SSCC Student Email and Google Apps for Education (GA4E) administrators, Catherine McCollum, Sara Newman and Janice Lonergan (please fill out this form for assistance)
Q: I already have a gmail account - why would I want another?
A: Your SSCC GA4E account offers more features to our campus than the usual gmail account. For example, it has built-in collaborative tools for team projects. Plus you'll have an official college e-mail address to use when submitting work to potential employers, etc. SSCC Google Apps for Education (GA4E) also provides a powerful online area to maintain your student work v.s. your personal online materials. That said, you can always FORWARD your SouthSeattle.edu e-mail to a preferred eeMail account. You can also take the reverse approach and point up to 5 different eMail accounts towards your new SSCC GA4E account.

A: There are several ways to access your SSCC GA4E (student email and cloud applications).
Try any of the following based upon your preferred starting point.

A: No. Only the account names are the same. There is no link between South Seattle's network and your SSCC GA4E account.
Q: Who can help me if I experience technical problems with SSCC GA4E?
A: Visit http://google.com/support/a/users/?hl=en for excellent online help :P
