How do I change my email display name?

A quick way to change the display name that people see in Gmail and Google+ is to change your Google+ profile name.

To do this, please go to https://aboutme.google.com/

Click on the pencil in the upper right corner. This will allow you to edit your Gmail display name.  

This will just change your display name, and will not affect your username or actual email address.

If you would like to change your Preferred First Name in other university resources, you will want to contact either the Registrar's office or Human Resources. More information is at: http://www.mtu.edu/registrar/students/information/preferred-name/
