Many UC Davis students use a name other than their legal name; to support these students, members of the campus registrar and other campus organizations have been working to create a service that allows students to indicate their preferred name in the Campus Directory.
The name they use on the campus director form will appear in place of their legal name in many university records and documents, including the campus directory, AggieCard, Bannar, SmartSite, and the Library. Other records, such as paychecks and financial aid, will continue to use the legal name.
To update your name, simply edit the name in the UC Davis Campus Directory. (Please note that faculty and staff are welcome to use this service, as well!)
