Personal Information

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

A: The lived name will be used throughout AIS. Log into MyUCSC and select the Personal Information tile. Select Names from the left side menu. Follow the instructions on the page to add or update your lived name. If you do not see a Personal Information tile on your home page, select Self Service from the Navigator menu. Then select My Personal Information > Names.

Staff and faculty who are not current students may also change their own name in the campus directory.

Employees who require a legal name change can update their name directly on the UCPath portal. Changing your legal name will not cause your legal name to be updated in AIS. You must request an AIS legal name change by emailing the Registrar’s Office (

Students who wish to change their name in AIS should view the information available in FAQs for Students: Personal and Privacy Information.
