All faculty, staff, and students have access to Google Drive. Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service developed by Google which allows users to store files in the cloud, synchronize files across devices, and share files.


Drive is a cloud-based file storage and sharing system with built-in tools for word processing (Google Docs), spreadsheet creation (Google Sheets), slideshow creation (Google Slides), and other collaboration and productivity applications. Through our Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) licensing, every App State faculty, staff, student, and retiree has unlimited storage space in Drive. Users can share files and collaborate with other Drive users, regardless of whether they have an App State account or not.
