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. If a preferred first name is set, this will remove the middle name from display.

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 Staff

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