    UWG's Preferred Name Option (New Spring 2021)

    Many students, faculty, and staff use names other than their legal name for a variety of personal or cultural reasons. In order to better serve our campus community, we have created the option to add a Preferred First Name to show in applicable University applications.

    You can submit the Preferred Name Change through Student Self-Service (BanWeb) under the Personal Information Menu - My Profile (New) Link. Simply click on the My Profile (New) link then the Personal Information box. Click on the edit link in the upper right corner of the Personal Details box. Once you have entered your Preferred First Name, be sure to click on 'Update' to save your changes.

    The Preferred First Name is visible in the following systems:

    • Student Self Service version 9 - Last Name, Legal First Name (Preferred First Name). ***Please note Student Self Service Version 8/BanWeb does not show preferred first name.
    • DegreeWorks or Wolf Watch (Student Legal First and Preferred First Name will appear; Advisor Preferred First Name will appear)
    • CourseDen (In Progress - Preferred Name will appear in Classlist)

    Your legal name will remain unchanged and still show in all other university related systems. The official academic record, the transcript, financial aid documents, diplomas, and paychecks must carry the legal name.
