Lived Names and Personal Pronouns
UC San Diego has implemented a new name policy for students as of Fall Quarter 2023. Students may now enter a lived name, including first, middle and last. This change is in accordance with the University of California’s Gender Recognition and Lived Name policy.
Lived name shall now be used in all places where legal name is not specifically required including the Canvas, class rosters, Student Campus ID cards, and in most other systems where you will interact with the university. Legal name will continue to be used for things such as generating bills, 1098-T documents, on transcript, Certificates, medical documentation and financial aid.
You may also indicate a set of personal pronouns by which you would like to be identified.
