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. This is helpful for setting your name to reflect your gender identity.
NOTE: Specifying a preferred first name will also hide your middle name. You can set your preferred first name as your legal name to only hide your middle name, if desired.
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: Identity Management, Active Directory, How to Change Display Name for Faculty/Staff
