Beginning Friday, September 1, 2017, the Institute will permit any student to identify themselves within the student information system with a chosen/preferred first name and/or a middle name or initial in addition to their legal name. The student's chosen/preferred name will be used in Institute communications and reporting, except where the use of the legal name is necessitated by Institute business practices or legal requirements. For example, the official academic record, the transcript, and financial aid documents must carry the legal name. Any student intends to use the Student Chosen/Preferred Name option must complete a Name Change Form and submit it to the Registrar’s Office. For essential information and important details, visit the Student Chosen/Preferred Name web page.
