Last Updated: 03/21/2014

Overview

This name is displayed in the "From:" line of e-mail messages you send. If you wish to use a display name that is not listed, please contact the IT Service Center.

This tutorial is operating system independent.

Requesting a new display name: acceptable additions

  • A display name must consist of a first name, or nick name, and the legal last name that exists in a source system (SIS for students, PeopleSoft for faculty/staff).
  • If the requested display name is to include a middle name, that middle name must also be in a source system.
  • Requests for shortened names (James = Jim, Daniel = Dan, Kimberly = Kim) will be processed without a source system update.
  • One word display names are not permitted.
