CAM Instructions for New Employees and Affiliates

Instructions for New Employees and Affiliates on how to use CalNet Account Manager (CAM) to create your CalNet ID

Two important notes!

  • CAM must have your employee or affiliate ID and an external email address in order for you to create your CalNet account. CAM receives this information from the HR system each night. You will need to wait to create your CalNet ID until the day after you receive your employee or affiliate ID.

  • CAM uses the external email address from your HR record as the Recovery Email Address to which you will receive account-related email notifications.
