Information
If you are a student looking to change your first name in certain ASU systems without changing your legal name, you can submit a Preferred Display Name request form. Once your request is processed, it will take 72 hours for the name change to take effect.

A change to your preferred display name will update some ASU systems, but not others. ASU is in the process of implementing the Preferred Display name in as many systems as possible. See chart below for current list of systems, as of August 2020, that will be updated.
