Chosen / Campus Name Procedures

Tags name Chosen


Cedar Crest College recognizes the need or preference for members of the College community to refer to themselves by a first name other than their legal first name. We are happy to share that members of our community will now be able to designate a chosen/campus name to be used on campus. We are excited to be able to provide this option to our community as we continue to strive to create the inclusive community we aspire to be.

Steps for Updating Your Accounts with your Chosen/Campus Name

Step 1: Update Name Preference in My CedarCrest for Registrar Approval

Directions for Requesting Approval for Your Chosen Name/Campus Name

Your first step is to login to My CedarCrest and update your Chosen Name within your personal settings. This will be submitted to the Registrar's Office for approval. Once approved, your updated name will be reflected in CANVAS, My CedarCrest, and other faculty-accessed documentation. 

Step 2: Send Name Change Request for Email to Information Technology
