Preferred First Name Change Request Form

Preferred First Name Change Request form 

Murray State University recognizes students may wish to use a name other than their legal name.  When requested, the University will use a preferred first name on certain documents and online information sources.  The official/legal name will remain on your permanent records, including but not limited to academic, employment, and tax records.  Students may not designate a preferred last name.  Students are encouraged to add a preferred first name prior to the start of a semester to assist instructors in consistently addressing a student throughout the course of a semester.

Places the Preferred First Name is displayed beginning with the Spring 2014 semester:

  • Class rosters in myGate will display the preferred first name with the official legal name for reference to other records by instructors
  • Canvas will display the preferred first name only

 

Complete the form and present it (with photo identification) at the Office of the Registrar, 113 Sparks Hall, Murray, KY, 42071.

If you are not able to present this form in person with a photo ID, you may mail the completed and notarized form to the Office of the Registrar.
