Name changes

Emerson's Name Change process allows you to use your college recognized name (nickname) or 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.

This table sums up where you should expect to see your college recognized name or preferred name.

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 business preferences
