Preferred (Chosen) Name for Students
Preferred (Chosen) Name
A student may choose a first name other than their legal name to identify themselves at OTC. A preferred (chosen) name is different than the student’s legal name. Students may identify a preferred (chosen) first name through any of the following processes:
- By identifying a preferred name in the “my contact” section of myOTC.
- By completing the Change of Student Information form and submitting to Student Services
- By identifying a preferred first name on the OTC application for admission
OTC reserves the right to deny or remove a preferred (chosen) name for any reason, including but not limited to misuse, misrepresentation, attempting to avoid legal obligation, or the use of inappropriate or offensive names, with or without notice.
