System Status: 

Lived Name for Students

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, and access to student legal name has been restricted. 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 VAC, WebReg, 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, within TritonPay, on 1098T documents, on refund checks, and for insurance and financial aid.  

NOTE: uAchieve, and Everfi/Vector (used for new student training) will not display Lived Name until the late December.

To enter or change your lived name and review your name settings, visit the Social Identities Tool.
