Relay recognizes that students have the right to identify themselves by a name other than their legal first names. Students will be referred by their legal first names by Relay staff and faculty members unless they have entered a preferred/chosen first name during the admissions application. A student’s preferred name will be respected at all times. Students may also change their preferred names at any time by submitting a student update form.
Relay reserves the right to deny or remove, with or without notice, a preferred name if it is used for inappropriate purposes including, but not limited to, misrepresentation, avoiding legal obligation, or the use of offensive or derogatory language. A student’s preferred name may be disclosed as “directory information” unless the student refuses to permit such disclosure. Students can submit a directory nondisclosure form at any time.
