It is slightly more difficult, like explained on the google support page:

You have to enter the data of your new google account, outlook than automatically copies all your data from outlook to google. Afterwards you can continue using google or outlook but all data is stored on the google servers, therefore there is no need for your other email address any longer.

It is important to mention that only the organization administrator can initialize the switch, not a user on his own, as a domain reconfiguration is required as well.

You can provision user accounts in Google Apps without enabling email if you want to use docs, sites, video, etc.  

The email address is still the login username, but can still go through your live@edu account.

You can bulk upload user accounts with firstname, lastname, and email address.

But, any reason not to move from live@edu to Google Apps completely if you will be using the collaboration apps?

@ allenfalcon i wanted students to have both cloud services just to give them option.
thnx and true googleApps can still sync without the rest of the e-mail address it read before the @. on the contrary live@edu requires the entire e-mail field and read after the @.
