Q: How do I request a professional name in AIS?[show]

A: Employees have the option to request a professional name be created in AIS. The professional name will be used throughout AIS, unless the employee is a former student. If the employee is a former student, the student name will still be associated with student records, including:

  • The official transcript
  • Degrees
  • Narrative evaluations.

No documentation is required to process a professional name request. Requests should be emailed to the Registrar's systems team, regsys@ucsc.edu, and should include the current name, the desired professional name, and if possible the AIS ID number.

Staff or faculty who are also current students cannot be given a professional name, but they can specify a preferred name or request a legal name change if appropriate. Please see the student FAQs for more information.
