Champlain College recognizes that some students may not wish to use the name that they were assigned at birth, as it does not reflect their identity. This is especially true for transgender, non-binary, and/or gender nonconforming but not limited to these students. We also recognize that for a variety of reasons students may not wish to go through a legal name change or may be in the middle of doing so, but wish to have their records reflect their chosen name before the process is complete. As such, the College has staff in place to assist students who wish to update their email addresses, academic class listings, and ID cards with their chosen name.
Students who would like to update their name to more accurately reflect their identity should complete this form. A member of the Student Affairs team will follow-up with the student to explain the process (in a 30 minute meeting) and confirm and approve the change. Students wishing to learn more about the scope of this option prior to completing the form should contact Lisa Mazzariello at email@example.com
