  • This Task requires authentication.Sign-in Required
  • This Task has been designed for use by Students. For Students

The University of Pittsburgh recognizes the need or preference for students to refer to themselves by a “preferred name” other than their legal given or first and/or middle name. Where a student seeks to use a preferred name for a significant reason, and such use is not intended for the purposes of avoiding legal obligations, in jest, or for misrepresentation, the University acknowledges that, where possible and practical, a preferred name can be used in the course of University business and education.
