If you go by a name that is different from your legal name you can fill out this form here and submit it to email@example.com. By doing this, the name you go by will be displayed on Canvas, Office 365, Outlook, Teams, Course Rosters for faculty to view, and can be put on the front of your student/employee ID. Do keep in mind that it will take us time to upgrade and change technology to contain preferred names. Below is more general information about the process and the policy can found here with more detailed information.
Can I change my email address and username to match my preferred name? Yes. You should fill out the Change of Personal listed above first. Once this is completed you can request that OIT change your email address and username to match your preferred name. This will impact your ability to login, therefore, OIT suggests requesting this in between semesters or early in the semester if possible. Use this link to start a ticket: https://w3.sfcc.edu/oit/support/request. Alternatively, call us at (505) 428-1222.
