New: Add a chosen/preferred first name for use across campus

Thursday, November 28, 2019

Do you want professors and interviewers to call you by a different first name? Take a minute now to verify or tell us your chosen/preferred first name in WatIAM.

Why? Starting in winter 2020, your chosen/preferred first name listed in WatIAM will be used broadly across campus (e.g., LEARN, Quest, WaterlooWorks, WatCard, etc.). Note: Your legal first name will always be used on certain official documents. For more details, visit Updating Personal Information.

Important notes:

  • If you included a preferred name on your OUAC application, it will be used as your chosen/preferred name unless you make a change now.
  • If you don't provide a chosen/preferred name, your legal first name will continue to be used.
