Request to Add a Lived/Preferred Name
Use this form to add a lived/preferred at SHC. 

Note the following terms: 

Spring Hill College recognizes that as a community many use names other than their legal name to identify  themselves. As long as the use of this different name is not for the purposes of misrepresentation, the College acknowledges that a “lived name” can and should be used wherever possible in the course of  business and education. This will promote a safe, inclusive, and non-discriminatory community. Students are free to determine the lived name they want to be known by in the student information systems. However, inappropriate use of the lived name process (including but not limited to avoiding a legal obligation or misrepresentation) may be cause for denying the request.

Under Spring Hill College’s lived name policy, any student may choose to identify a lived name. The student’s lived name may be used in many College contexts, including but not limited to class and athletic rosters, email address, Learning Management System (LMS), Student Information System, and on ID Cards. However, for some other records, the College may be required to use an individual's legal name. 

Preferred names will never be used for official student record purposes such as enrollment verifications, transcripts, financial aid, student accounts and other instances where the legal name is required. In order to change a legal name, students must provide the official document of the legal name change along with the Change of NameRequest form to the Office of the Registrar.
