SH.06.C – Legal and Preferred Name Changes

At TCC, we believe in fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion that welcomes and respects everyone for who they are and who they will become. As such, we have established processes that allow students to update a legal name or select a preferred name. This option has been developed to respond to the needs of those who prefer to use their middle name instead of their first name, people who use nicknames of a legal name, international students that might use an anglicized name, or students who use a name that affirms their gender identity.
