Preferred Name

UW Oshkosh now offers a “preferred name” option for students.  Preferred name is a service for students who wish to be known by a name other than their primary/legal name.  The preferred name will populate through the following systems:  Student Center, Class Rosters, D2L, and the TitanCard.  Students are only allowed to change their first and middle name to a preferred name.

The preferred name will be located on the front of the TitanCard and the legal name will be on the back of the Titan Card.

Students who want their preferred name on their TitanCard are asked to complete the Preferred Name Change form through the registrar’s office. Once the preferred name is approved and has been entered into Titan web, the student will print off a screenshot of the Names page and bring it to Titan Central to receive their Preferred Name TitanCard.  There is no cost to update a current TitanCard to a Preferred Name TitanCard as long as the cardholder surrenders their previous TitanCard.  There will be a $20.00 fee charged if the cardholder does not have their original TitanCard or if the Preferred Name TitanCard has to be replaced.
