Seniors - Transfer your Gmail Accounts!
Posted on 04/12/2019
Congratulations to all graduating seniors! As you begin your journey out of high school, the Victor Valley Union High School District’s (VVUHSD) Technology Department would like to remind and help you to take your digital information with you.

Since many of you have been submitting college applications with your school email account and saving a lot of content into your Google Drive, we encourage you to create your own Gmail account now to continue using after high school. 

Your current school account will still be available to you for 6 months after graduation, but after that it will be turned off.

In order to help you with this transition, we have included a few helpful tips for moving your data over to your personal account and ensuring that you continue receiving important email during your transition out of high school.

CREATING YOUR OWN GOOGLE ACCOUNT

If you have not yet created your own Google account, please go to: https://accounts.google.com/signup

Follow the directions to create your own Google Account

We suggest choosing a professional account name such as your first and last name or first initial and last name

SET YOUR STUDENT EMAIL TO AUTO-FORWARD OVER TO YOUR OWN GOOGLE ACCOUNT

To begin forwarding your student email to your personal account, please go to: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/10957?hl=en

Once there, click on “Turn automatic forwarding on or off”

Follow the steps identified on the page while logged into your student Gmail account

TRANSFER YOUR GOOGLE DOCUMENTS TO YOUR OWN GOOGLE ACCOUNT

To transfer all of your existing Gmail and Google documents over to your own account, please go to: https://takeout.google.com/transfer

Once there, enter your own personal Google account email address, and click on “Send Code”

Look for a code that will be sent to your personal Gmail account, and enter that code on the Google Transfer page

Click on Verify

Select the content to transfer over and then click on “Start Transfer”
