Preferred name and contact information

Minnesota State Colleges and Universities and Minnesota State College Southeast recognize and support the members of its community who wish to use preferred names where legally permissible.  Students and employees may designate a preferred name to be used when a legal name is not required in the course of college business and educational pursuits.

Preferred names will appear where legal name is not required. MSC Southeast will use preferred names where technically and legally possible.  Examples include e-mail accounts, class rosters, honor program lists, D2L Brightspace, advisee lists, ID cards and alumni records. This list is subject to change. Use of preferred names will be phased in as technical resources permit.  

See: Minnesota State Preferred Name Procedure 

Students can designate a preferred name under Name and Address Info beneath Account Management in eServices.
