Name changes

Emerson's Name Change process allows you to use your preferred name (updated name) instead of your legal first name. This process facilitates the name change on applicable campus systems in a consistent manner.

There are some areas where restrictions could apply to using your legal name. We have been working to ensure as many systems as possible can accommodate your name change.

For any system listed below that supports the name change hierarchy (as indicated by the green check mark) either your preferred name or your legal name will be displayed, in that order of preference.

checkmark = Supported
red-x-mark = Not supported due to legal limitations
gray-x-mark = Not supported due to technical limitations
blue-x-mark = Not supported due to functional requirements
