What if a student already has a personal Gmail account?

Students can continue to use their personal Gmail account. A ScarletMail account is a separate account that does not affect existing Gmail accounts. The advantage of the G Suite for Education account is each user has unlimited storage for Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos in an ad-free environment that maintains your Rutgers identity through your email address.

The difference is mostly on the look and feel of the applications. Behind the scenes, Google also delegates control of Rutgers Google Apps and user accounts to Rutgers system administrators.
