All new email addresses (from August 2016) for incoming students will have your last name and a number (ex: email@example.com), and your preferred name pulled from the Admissions database will also be displayed.
Step 1: Contact the Registrar to change you preferred first name.
Step 2: Contact HelpLine and confirm that your preferred name has been changed through the Registrar.
The "First Name Label" associated with your email address will be then be changed (to your new preferred name); not your actual email address/username.
Step 3: If your email address/username is the older "last name+first initial" format, you can change it to the new "last name+number" format by scheduling an appointment with Jared Hoffman (the associate director for enterprise infrastructure, firstname.lastname@example.org) who will assist with any possible disruption of services.
Names can only be changed on college documents if you have legally changed your name in your residential state (for U.S. citizens). Information about legal names changes and identification documentations is available through the Trans Equality ID Document Center.
This feature is coming soon to our Banner system. We will contact the campus community when the system has been updated.
