Google Apps for Faculty and Staff
Posted by Mujtaba Talebi, Last modified by Mujtaba Talebi on 20 November 2014 02:17 PM

All faculty and staff are automatically provisioned a Google Apps account after being hired. These "Staff Google Apps" accounts provide services like Google Drive/Docs, Google talk and more. These accounts do NOT include Gmail. These accounts should also not be confused with Student Google Apps accounts that do include Gmail. A college employee who is also taking classes at the College can have both a Staff and Student Google Apps account. The Staff Google Apps account should be used for work purposes and the Student Google Apps account should be used for classwork. If an employee leaves the College their Staff Google Apps account will be disabled. A student Google Apps account will still be available if a student graduates or is not currently taking a class.

How to access your Google Apps for Staff account

1. Login to delaGATE at delagate.dccc.edu.

What happens if someone shares a Google Apps link with me and I click on it? Do I have to go through delaGATE first?

Simply click on the link. If you are already logged into Staff Google Apps through delaGATE the link should open without any trouble. If you are not logged in through delaGATE then you will be sent to Google's login page. Simply type in your College email address in the Email field and click "Sign in" without a password. You will be redirected to our Google Apps login page where you can enter your delaGATE username and password to get access to the shared link without going to delaGATE.
