Email, Active Directory, How to Change Preferred Name for Students

"I would like to use a preferred name instead of my legal name."

Students can designate a preferred first name which certain university systems will use.

Please refer to the University Preferred First Name Statement for further details on how to set or change a preferred first name and where it will and won't be used.

Staff should use the existing procedures documented here: Email, Active Directory, How to Change Display Name for Faculty and Staff

However, if staff were a previously-registered student recently (since 2004), they may be able to follow the same instructions as students.
