Using your preferred name at the Mount

A preferred name is a first, middle or last name that is chosen to be used instead of legal name.

Students may opt to go by a preferred name that is different from their legal first name. This name reflects what you want to be called.

The Mount allows students to use preferred names for purposes such as class lists, e-mail addresses, and student ID cards.

We hope to make this process as seamless as possible for you, and have dedicated one contact person in the Registrar’s office to handle everything on your behalf.

Simply email or visit her in Evaristus 207 and she will ensure:
Your name is changed in the university’s information systems
Your email address is modified
Your name is updated on class lists and Moodle
An updated student ID card is printed for you

Please note however, that we are still developing and experiencing some challenges with these systems, but we are working to over come them. If you have any questions, please email Martine as listed above, or any of your Students’ Union representatives.
