Change Your Preferred Name for UND Systems

Last name (surname) changes must be made directly through HR or the Registrar, and must accompany legal documentation of the change. Please contact HR or the Registrar for more info on last name changes.

Students, faculty, and staff have the option to provide a preferred name that will appear in UND systems instead of their on-file legal name. Preferred changes can be made to the person's first name, middle name, name prefix, and name suffix.
