Information Technology is happy to report that the migration to Office 365 is complete. All email and Skype for Business accounts were moved successfully to Office 365.
Email migration involved many moving parts, and in some cases, account owners must reconfigure their devices with the new service. Your cooperation and participation were key to the success of the project. The project team thanks you for your support during this migration phase.
We are excited that everyone will now have the opportunity to take advantage of the on-going releases from Microsoft that will happen in the coming months. We hope you appreciate the additional email storage as well:
- 100 GB of email storage with enhanced email security features
- 1 TB of file cloud storage on OneDrive
At this time, we are moving into next phase of the project and will begin delivering more services. We will be offering training opportunities to learn about the new capabilities of Microsoft 365, as well as major offerings during the next phase of the project.

Teams will be rolled out in a phased approach. We will be enabling Teams for all employees and students. This means that everyone will have the option to use Teams for collaborations, meeting, and chat in parallel with Skype for the next five months.
First, we will be starting with the roll-out of Teams for instructional and classroom in August. Then to take full advantage and increase the adoption of Teams, we will transition employees from Skype for Business to Teams in stages. Skype for Business will be retired by STLCC. Our official cutoff date is Jan. 31, 2021, after which Teams will be used exclusively for our communication and collaboration service.
