Preferred Name Changes

UBC recognizes that many members of its community use first names other than their legal names originally provided to the University to identify themselves. A preferred first name is a name that you commonly use that is different from your legal first name.

Inappropriate use of the preferred first name procedure including attempts to avoid a legal obligation via misrepresentation, or the use of inappropriate language, will result in the denial and/or reversal of the request and can be disciplined through either Academic or Non-Academic Misconduct.

UBC uses a student’s preferred name in the following places:

  • Class list (beside your given name)
  • UBCcard
  • University-related system (e.g. Connect)
  • Various on-campus services

Your preferred name will appear instead of your legal name in university-related systems and documents (e.g. Connect), except where the use of the legal name is required by University business or legal need.
