The migration to OneDrive for faculty/staff (@mymail.aacc.edu acounts) and students enrolled in the Spring 2023 semester will occur between 4:00 p.m. on May 25 and 8:00 a.m. on May 27.

Students not enrolled in courses for Spring 2023 will be migrated to OneDrive May 12 - 20.

How to Prepare
  • Remove any unused files on your H Drive.  
  • Do not change your password between May 25 and May 27.
How does this change my day-to-day?

The short answer is, it probably won’t. Nearly all of the migration’s aspects will be addressed by IIT staff behind the scenes, without you even knowing it. After migration, there are a few ways to access your files:

  1. OneDrive Client: Accessing your student files from an AACC classroom/computer lab or personal computer can be accomplished utilizing the OneDrive application (app). The OneDrive app is installed on all AACC computers and may come pre-installed on your personal Windows device.  You can also download it here.  Instructions for linking your AACC account with OneDrive can be found in the Logging in to the OneDrive Client knowledge base article. 
  2. OneDrive from a Web Browser: The easiest way to access your files on a personal device is through a web browser. Simply sign into MyAACC and select OneDrive.
