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.
|Active Directory/Outlook Global Address List (GAL)||Yes|
|ASU Mobile (Achievement App)||Yes|
|DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System)||Yes|
|Email Name (Outlook and Gmail)||Yes |
|Google Apps||Yes |
|iSearch/ASU Directory||Yes |
|Finances||Updated on select pages|
|My ASU ||Updated on select pages|
|My ASU Class Roster||Yes|
|PeopleSoft Student Records||Updated on select pages|
|Sun Devil Fitness Center||No|
This process will not change your ASURITE.
If you have changed your legal name and want to update your name in all ASU systems, you can submit the request a formal name change form
and a change to your ASURITE ID form
with the request type ASU ID Change Request
