You may indicate a preferred first name that will appear in documents internal to UNH. The preferred first name will be used in the places listed below, regardless of whether or not you have legally changed your name. To change your name legally, go to Legal Name Change.
The usage of preferred first name at UNH is an ongoing process. Additional processes will continue to be evaluated.
Note: Staff with an administrative need (e.g., police, health, and financial services; Deans’ office staff, IT Support Staff) will see both legal and preferred first names. Similar to GPAs and other sensitive information, these staff are trained on the implications of this access.
