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 wish to have their records reflect their chosen name before the process is complete. As such, 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 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 the Reese Kelly at rkelly@champlain.edu, located in IDX Student Life Center 313.
