To add your chosen/affirmed/preferred name to our system, please login to the Student Update Form. On the right side of the screen, there is a blue “start” that will take you to your personal information page after you sign in. The top section of this page contains your personal details and an “edit” button on the right. Once you click the edit button, you will have the option to add a “Preferred First Name.”
Once a “preferred” name is entered, it will be reflected in Canvas once the information populates from one system to the other. Please allow the system a couple of days to populate your chosen/affirmed name on Canvas.
