New or returning students can submit a chosen/preferred first name at the time of application through CCCApply.

It is important to understand that designating your chosen/preferred first name does NOT constitute a legal name change. A students' legal name will continue to be used on certain college documents, such as transcripts and financial aid documents. A student's chosen/preferred first name will display in Canvas and Self-Service, including class rosters, and wait lists for use by instructors. For legal name changes, contact your campus Admissions and Records office. Read the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Please note it takes between 2-4 days to process chosen/preferred first name requests and for your chosen/preferred first name to appear in Canvas and Self-Service with other apps to follow.
