Preferred Names at UNM

In keeping with UNM Administrative Policy 2720 (Prohibited Discrimination - Gender Identity and Expression), effective Monday, January 22, 2018, the LoboCard Office began printing LoboCards with affirmed/preferred first names.  Affirmed/Preferred first names must be submitted through LoboWeb and require a 24-hour update period for the information to be pushed out to the carding software.

Preferred Name Instructions

The LoboCard Office will offer one free name change to accommodate the preferred name initiative.  Since only preferred first names are included in this initiative at this time, this one-time offer only applies to reprints tied to first names.  Should the cardholder request to return to legal name or to change to another preferred name, the $10 name change fee will apply.
