Request for Chosen Name Change

Champlain College recognizes that transgender, non-binary, and/or gender-nonconforming students may not use the name that they were assigned at birth, as it does not reflect their identity. We also recognize that, for a variety of reasons, students may not wish to go through a legal name change—or may be in the middle of doing so—but don't want to use their dead name in class and on campus in the meantime. To accommodate this, the College has staff in place to assist students who wish to update their email addresses, academic class listings, and ID cards with their chosen name.

To inquire about or begin the process of updating an email address, academic class listing, and ID card, please complete the Chosen Name Request Form. Students wishing to learn more about the specific scope of this option before completing the form should contact Lisa Mazzariello at mazzariello@champlain.edu, located in IDX Student Life Center 315.

Alumni: Change your address or phone number by completing the form on this page.

Request to Update Legal Sex Designation

Students who wish to update their sex designation must provide a copy of their driver's license, state ID card, or equivalent documentation to verify the change to their legal sex designation. This information can be provided in person, by mail, or by fax.

Please send the necessary information to:

Fax: (802) 419-4957 

Request to Update Canvas Display Name

Please complete this form if you prefer your instructor and peers to call you by a name other than your first name currently displayed in Canvas. Example cases are students who solely or primarily go by a nickname or a middle name. This preferred name will ONLY be reflected in Canvas in parentheses between your first and last name: Robert (Bob) Smith. Please note that this form will only change your name in Canvas — not in any other campus-wide systems.
