Preferred name request

A preferred name is a name that a person has chosen to identify themselves within the MnSCU system that is different (in whole or in part) from their legal name. A preferred name will appear on class rosters and other records as technically feasible except in places where a legal name is required (such as financial aid records and student transcripts).
