UMD Google Apps for Education



UMD Google is the centralized email and calendar system for faculty and staff and affiliates (with email permissions) at the university. Graduate Assistants also have UMD Google accounts to use for assistantship duties (accounts expire when the assistantship does). Undergraduate students may also use UMD Google accounts for on-campus jobs if desired by the employer.
