Trans & Gender Nonconforming Resources

Preferred Name Process

In order to ensure that an individual's name reflects their gender identity, MiraCosta College makes it easy for students to change their preferred name. There are two ways for students to change their names:

  1. Online, add a preferred name through your SURF account.
  2. In person, stop by Admissions and Record to submit a paper Preferred Name Change form.

The Preferred name is the default name automatically used on class rosters and student ID cards, in online courses (Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle), and to borrow items from the college library.

Note: The Office of Admissions and Records does not currently require any documentation to add or update a preferred name. If students wish to change their primary (Legal) name, documentation is required. For more information about legally changing name and gender in the State of California, please visit the California Courts website.
