The initial password will be “cu##” followed by the last four numbers of your social security number (i.e. cu##1234).

What if I forgot my password or my default password isn’t working?

Log in to the Email Control Panel with your university username and password. Click “Reset my Google Apps password” and follow all of the instructions on the next screen.

How do I change my Google Workspace for Education password?

Your Google Workspace for Education password should NOT be identical to your Clemson password. This is because the Google Workspace account is hosted by Google, not Clemson University. Password changes on Google will not change your password on the Clemson network and vice versa.

You can change your password within your account settings. Resetting your G Workspace password will NOT change your Clemson Username password. For detailed instructions, please see Google’s password reset walkthrough.
