Preferred Names

Students may request that their "Preferred Name" be different from their legal name of record. The "Preferred Name" is used for services such as email, display name in Blackboard, and presented in class rosters. Examples: change a legal name of "Mary Jane Poe" to "MJ Poe", or "Frederick Andrew Wright" to "Andy Wright".

Note that diplomas and materials related to STCW will use legal names. 

To add or change a preferred name, login using your Academy username and password. Then navigate back to this page to fill out the form.  If you are not able to log into the website or see the form below after doing so, please contact the Help Desk
