Augsburg University recognizes that some of its members use names other than their legal names to identify themselves. As long as the use of this different name is not for the purpose of misrepresentation, the University allows students to use a first name different than the legal name on certain university records.
Please note that changing your preferred name for certain records does not change your legal name with Augsburg University. Below is a listing of all of the areas in which your preferred name will appear (once changed) and areas in which your legal name will still appear:
|Preferred First Name Will Appear:||Legal First Name Will Appear:|
*Athletics also double-checks with students to ensure public athletic rosters use preferred name
Students who have had their name legally changed should complete a legal name/address change form. Your new legal first and last name will appear on ALL university documentation listed above, though one’s former legal name will be stored in some university records and not redacted.
