Access to your Bates G Suite Account, including your Bates Username and Password will Expire on Monday, January 16th, 2017.

There are several utilities available to you to assist with migrating your Bates G Suite account data to a Personal G Suite account. The simplest option is to utilize CloudGopher which makes a copy of your Bates G Suite account (Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, and Docs), including “Shared with me” files into your personal G Suite account. If you don’t have a personal G Suite account, obtaining one is easy and free. Just visit the Create your Google Account website.
