Procedures for Requesting an EECS Account for a New Staffperson

Last revised 7-aug-2014

These instructions are for the new employee's tech support/manager.



  1. When you have been notified that the user is in the campus financial system: They will need to visit a CalNet deputy (list here, under EECS) to get a CalNet token
  2. The user will use the token to activate their CalNet account and select a CalNet ID and password. Some deputies will walk them through this process.
  3. When the user has activated their CalNet ID: They must then create a campus bApps account: http://ist.berkeley.edu/bconnected. They will need to do this in order to get a campus bMail address.
  4. When the user has a bApps account: You may then fill out an EECS account request form: https://iris.eecs.berkeley.edu/db/roster/roster.php?todo=ins . Be sure to use the user's new bMail email address as their "Current Email Address"
  5. When the user's EECS account comes through: The user can be added to:
    • the pertinent Windows groups (contact your sysadmin)
    • unit-specific email aliases (contact your sysadmin)
    • the eecs-staff and eecs-announce mail lists (contact acg@eecs)

    The user will automatically be added to the EECS directory and the appropriate building information mail list.

  6. Be sure that your user sets their CalNetKey (https://calnet.calnet.berkeley.edu/myi/key/set) and Security Questions (https://calnet.calnet.berkeley.edu/myi/questions/set).
  7. The user should add their @eecs.berkeley.edu account to bMail under Settings/Accounts. Click "treat as an alias" and make it the default so that the user can send mail to department lists.
