Announcement on Preferred First Name Option - 3/23/15
The University of San Francisco, recognizing that many students use preferred first names other than their legal ones to identify themselves, offers the option of the use of a preferred first name. Effective Spring 2015, the University extends the preferred first name option in order to foster a more welcoming, supportive, and respectful campus climate for all of its students. The preferred first name will be maintained by the Office of the Registrar in the University's Banner Student System and will appear in many internal locations, including class lists, grade rosters, and the internal (unofficial) transcript.
Note: The preferred first name is not a legal name change. Students who are legally changing their name should follow the instructions on the Name Change website (http://www.usfca.edu/onestop/Student_Records/SSN_and_Name_Changes/).
For more information on the preferred first name option, including how to add your preferred first name, please visit the Preferred First Name website (http://www.usfca.edu/Registration/Preferred_First_Name/).
Please note: All freshman students are prohibited from bringing vehicles to campus, and all on-campus residential students are ineligible to receive parking permits from Public Safety. In accordance with San Francisco city planning, sustainability efforts, and in order to reduce the amount of traffic in the residential neighborhood that surrounds the university, USF provides all undergraduate students with MUNI passes each semester, and encourages the use of alternative transportation.
