Obtain a Student ID card with your Preferred (Common) Name

You now have the ability to obtain a Student ID card with your preferred (common) name! 

  1. Update your preferred name in SIS by clicking the pencil icon next to your name in the About Me tab. (Please note: preferred names can only be printed on Student ID cards if they contain alpha characters only.) Updating your preferred name in SIS will also update your name on class and grade rosters.
  2. If you are replacing an old Student ID card, contact Public Safety about your request for an updated Student ID card. (Incoming students requesting their first Tufts ID card do not need to contact Public Safety, but will have their preferred name appear on their ID card automatically.) 

There is no charge for this service! Learn more about updating your name on your Student ID card.

As a reminder, you can also have your name updated for general communications at Tufts. (Your diploma records will remain as your legal name and, as of now, your Tufts User Name will not change).
