After Graduation

What Happens to Your SBAConnect Account After Graduation?
  • Google Accounts are made available to students during their time here for school purposes. 
  • PLEASE DO NOT USE YOUR SBACONNECT ADDRESS FOR NON-EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES as it will be deleted after you graduate.  After graduation, students have until the next fall to transfer their data off of their Google accounts, after which their sbaconnect accounts will be terminated. 
  • YOUR SBACONNECT ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED AND ANY FILES STORED ON GOOGLE DRIVE WILL BE LOST.  But never fear, there is an easy way to transfer the files to your personal computer.

Downloading Your Files Through Google Takeout
  • Go to takeout.google.com/settings/takeout
  • Make sure you are logged into your SBAconnect on a desktop computer.
  • Select the Google Products where your desired files that you would like to download are located (i.e. Google Drive, Youtube, Contacts, etc.).
  • Select File type. The .zip file is recommended, it is a condensed file that takes up less space. 
  • Click Next, and wait for it to gather all your files, this might take a while.
  • Once it is finished, it will send you an email with links to download your archived files in parts. Click to download.
  • Once it is downloaded, you will notice that the file is zipped so that you can't immediately see your files, double click to unzip.
  • You will now be able to see and edit all your files on your personal desktop, where they are safe from the clutches of the SBA IT Department.
