Preferred Name Change

With the growing diversity of our campus, many students use names other than their given name for a variety of personal or cultural reasons. To better serve our students, we have created the option to add a Preferred First Name to several University applications that are used by students. A list of applications that display preferred name can be found here.

By submitting the Preferred Name form through Owl Express, I understand that:

  • The Preferred First Name replaces the Legal First Name in The following systems:
