Set a preferred name or degree name

Your primary/legal name is the default used for University systems. You may set a preferred name for University directories, class rosters, and grade rosters. You may also set the degree name that will appear on your printed diploma.

Your preferred name will appear to parents and/or guests if you grant them access to information on your student record. Your primary/legal name may also appear. Learn more about preferred and primary name uses.
