    If you have email forwarding already set up from your @ucsc.edu account, you now have access to your entire UCSC Google Apps.

    Never set up email forwarding? No worries. You can restore access to your student  @ucsc.edu account and access your full Slug G Suite by providing your @ucsc.edu email address when accessing any Google Apps service. You will need your CruzID and Gold password to log in. If you don’t remember your CruzID or Gold password, email ITS Support at help@ucsc.edu for assistance.

    If you have never had a UCSC Google account, you are not not eligible for a Slug G Suite account at this time.
