Preferred name and gender identity

The City College of New York is committed to providing educational excellence to its students while creating a diverse, inclusive atmosphere for learning. 

Students and employees can select their preferred name (first and/or middle) as well as preferred gender identity. No documentation is needed to update a preferred name or preferred gender identity. You can also request a new CCNY ID card and/or email address reflecting the updated information.  For support with these changes:
