Update Preferred Name (Students)

The University recognizes that many community members use names other than their primary/legal names to identify themselves. To find out more information about updating your preferred name visit the Registar FAQ page, or email [email protected].

Update Preferred Name (Staff/Faculty)

Payroll/HR systems must use your legal name, but if you would like to have your display name changed, you will need to submit an Atlas self-service ticket at https://atlas.utdallas.edu. To submit an Atlas Self-service ticket:

  • Go to https://atlas.utdallas.edu and log in using the link in the top right corner
  • Click the Service Catalog button
  • Under Account & ID Management and Identity Mangement (NetID), click Change Display Names
  • Enter your correct name, where the name displays correctly or incorrectly, and whether it’s a legal or preferred name change
  • Click Submit
  • Note the service request number, if desired, and click OK
