Changes to Google Accounts for Former Students & Staff

Starting on July 16th, 2018, UNI will begin to turn off Google accounts for students, faculty, and staff not currently enrolled in classes or employed at UNI. However, if you graduated from UNI, received a certificate or other endorsement, you are eligible for a free UNI Alumni Google account. For more information and to sign up for your Alumni Account, visit the IT support article UNI Alumni Account.

Some important things to note:

  • Your CatID credentials will continue to function for other resources at UNI like the MyUNIverse Portal (for checking unofficial transcripts or requesting official transcripts).
  • If you have used your UNI Google account as your primary contact information for any online services outside of UNI (, Facebook, Etc) you will need to update those records prior to July 16th to avoid interruptions in service with those sites.
  • You must migrate any personal data in your UNI Google account you wish to keep prior to July, 16th, 2018. For help and assistance in migrating your data, please see the IT support article on downloading your personal data.
  • If you will not be eligible for a new alumni domain account and would like to continue receiving emails and newsletters from the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association, please update them with your new email address. Send an email to or visit their updating contact information form.
