A preferred name is a name you choose to be called that is different than your legal name.
Adelphi University recognizes that some students wish to use a preferred name in addition to their legal name. As long as the use of a preferred name is not used for misrepresentation, abuse or to avoid accountability, a student may request this option, where possible.
Students are encouraged to add a preferred name prior to the start of a semester, but are able to do so at any time.
