Refer to EP 7.302 Preferred Name Policy - to support students who have a preferred name, such as Hawaiian name, an
international name, or a name that is concurrent with their gender identity. This policy is limited to first name and not surname
or family name. UH will make every effort to display preferred first name to the University community where feasible and
appropriate and make a good faith effort to update reports, documents, and systems. Preferred name will appear on UH ID card,
class roster, and directories such as Laulima, and STAR.
UH reserves the right to deny or remove, with or without notice, any preferred name for misuse, including but not limited to fraud,
misrepresentation, attempting to avoid legal obligation, or the use of highly offensive or derogatory name.
Legal name will still be used on certain records, including official transcripts, diplomas, paychecks, payroll records, enrollment
verifications, medical records, financial aid documents and other records, which require use of an official name of record.
Special Characters are not possible at this time.
Replacement fee charges may apply to issue a new ID card.
Approved changes may take five to seven business days to take effect.
Changes to UH username and/or UH email account can be made to the UH ITS Help Desk or call (808) 956-8883 (Oahu) or (1-800)
558-2669 (Neighbor Islands), or email help@hawaii.edu.
