berkeleyEduAffiliations (ucbaffiliations) attributes identify the affiliations associated with every user's CalNet account.
berkeleyEduAffiliations are multi-valued. Values are grouped according to broad categories: Employee, Student, Affiliate and Guest. A user can have multiple affiliations, such as a student who is also an employee.
When an affiliation is no longer active, the affiliation is marked as FORMER-*. Former-affiliation information is retained for a specific length of time, (a "grace period"), determined by the type of affiliation(s) the user had. See Grace Periods for additional details.
The berkeleyEduAffiliations attribute is publicly available and can be used by any campus application to make authoritative decisions.
Affiliation values can occasionally change based on campus needs. Check this page for updates, and review the Deprecated Affiliations section, below for outdated values.
