The College of Staten Island respects Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) students’ names and recognizes that students may be unable to go through a legal name change during their time here. The College is committed to using a student’s preferred name during their time as a student. Any student can provide their preferred name on CUNYfirst or in person at the Registrar office located in Building 2A, Room 107 by submitting a CUNYfirst Preferred Name Request Form. Forms are also available at the Registrar’s Office.

All of this information can be found online.

Students have been sent detailed instructions regarding preferred name changes  If you encounter a student who wants to utilize this process, feel free to have them contact Jeremiah Jurkiewicz, LGBTQ Resource Center/Pluralism & Diversity Coordinator (Campus Center [1C], Room 226), 718.982.3091, or
