Students each have a Primary, Preferred (Campus) and Degree name recorded in PeopleSoft.
- The Primary name is the legal name usually first name, middle initial and last name.
- The Preferred (Campus) name defaults to the legal name but students can request a campus name. See the Campus Name Policy for more information.
- The Degree name, usually the full legal name, is used on the diploma and commencement bulletin. The Registrar’s Office will verify how you want your name listed during the semester prior to commencement.

To request a Campus (Preferred) name separate from your legal name, submit the Campus Name Change Form.
The request once submitted will be reviewed the next business day. If there are any questions, the Registrar’s Office may contact you. Once approved, the new campus name will spread out to other campus systems, replacing the legal name.
