Google Workspace for Education
Google Workspace for Education is a cloud-based suite of applications geared toward education, providing members of the CMU community with solutions for communication, collaboration and storage. This includes Core Services, those that are covered under the Carnegie Mellon University Google Workspace for Education contract, and Additional Services which are governed by a contract between the customer and Google. You can access both with your Andrew account.
For the best experience, use Google products, including Google Mail and Calendar, in a browser or with Google mobile apps.
Always log into Google with your Andrew userID and password—do not use your consumer Google account for university business. These core apps are available to the Carnegie Mellon University campus community (current students, faculty and staff) at no cost, with no advertisements. These FERPA-compliant apps are covered under the Carnegie Mellon University Google Workspace for Education contract with Google and include:
Additional Google Services are available for your use, but are governed by a contract between you and Google.
What are Google's Additional Services?
These apps can be used with your Andrew email address, but do not fall under the Carnegie Mellon University Google Workspace for Education contract with Google. When you use Google Additional Services you agree to terms between you and Google. Most Google Additional Services are governed by the general Google Terms of Service, but some have app-specific Terms of Service.
Please refer to Google's documentation for help with these apps.
What Data Can I Use with Google's Additional Services?
These apps and add-ons are not FERPA-compliant. FERPA data is defined as Restricted and therefore cannot be used in an Additional Service or add-on. All data uploaded to these apps or add-ons must be classified as Public, which means information that is intended for public access. Visit Data Classification Standard for more information.
Anyone using these apps or add-ons with their Andrew account must still adhere to Carnegie Mellon University Guidelines for Data Protection.
