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:
- Appointment Plus
- Banner (INB)
- Bright Space by D2L
- Collegiate Link - Owl Life
- Concur Security

- The Preferred First Name will be added to the Class Roster, Student Advising Guide and Degreeworks.
