What if I used my alumni forwarding to create a google account?

Some users created a personal Google Account using their alumni forwarding email address. Therefore, when you claim your @berkeley email Google sees this as a conflicting account. When you next sign in to your personal Google Account, you’ll be asked to resolve this conflicting account by creating a new google account OR adding to an account you already have. You will not be able to use your @berkeley as the new account. Click here for more information


How do I change my CalNet ID?

You can change your CalNet ID using the tool here.. Find instructions online here.
