Name Changes & Campus Records

Due to a recent change in Banner usage at all University of Illinois campuses, changes to name and gender markers in University records, including I-card and Blackboard, are initiated with a legal name change.

The GSC, the Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of LGBTQ People and Allies, and various units on campus are working to reinstate a user-friendly preferred name procedure. In the meantime, please contact GSC staff for more information.

You can find the official policy regarding name changes here:

The GSC staff can walk you through the process for legal name change and/or gender marker in Illinois and at the University. For additional information, please contact the Transformative Justice Law Project at www.TJLP/ or seek out free legal representation for students available through UIC Legal Services at
