Employees Leaving The University
Employees have a separate process from students for transitioning out of George Fox University and will find it useful to be aware of the following information concerning their Google Apps account which includes email.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- Can I keep my George Fox employee email account?
- Can I forward my George Fox emails?
- What about my other Google Apps products?
- When will my email be deleted?
- I need to transfer some of my emails and Google docs to another employee?
- I will no longer be an employee but I am an Alumnus?
Generally no, unless you qualify for Staff/Administrator Emeritus status. Staff and Administrative employees consult the Employee handbook or the Human Resources department. Faculty consult the Academic Affairs office. If you are an alumnus, a separate account will be created under your student username and will not contain or be connected to the emails and data in your employee account. top
As an employee, forwarding your George Fox email is not an approved business practice. In any event, if you start forwarding your emails just before you leave, it does not accomplish saving your emails because it only forwards new emails from that point forward. top

6. I will no longer be an employee but I am an alumnus?
All students have an email username that is assigned based on when they were first admitted to the University. When you become an alumnus, you retain your student e-mail address for a new alumni George Fox email and Google Apps account. If you were an alumus before you became an employee, as an employee, your username changes to one without any year attached. Conversely, when you are no longer an employee, your username reverts back to the one you had as a student and the year is added back to your username. Your employee and your alumni accounts will be separate and will not contain the same emails and data. Click on the Alumni Email Forwarding link on the left for more information.
