Blue Ridge Community College Google Apps for Education Basic Instructions Google Apps for Education is a tool offered to educational institutions providing email accounts, and other services. BRCC is utilizing this service in order to standardize student email addresses. There is no backup provided, so please be sure to save any important emails. Email accounts may be removed after the semester. Instructors will use Google (still known as "webmail" so previous users will use their same webmail address) as the primary email address to contact online students, so please check your email frequently. Note: Google email addresses will be automatically created on, or shortly after, students submit their applications - just as we have always done. BRCC Google Support - firstname.lastname@example.org . Please type "Google Help" in the email subject textbox. 1. Web address: Click http://webmail.blueridge.edu to access your Google email. 2. Sign-in - Type your BRCC username and password (or 7 digit Student ID number). If you registered early, you should have received a post card giving you your username and password (which is your 7 digit student ID number). If you need to find that information, please follow the steps at this address: http://www.blueridge.edu/distance_learner/dl_username_pw.php 3.
