  1. Log into ExpressLane and in the Personal Information tab and click on Name Change Information. 
  2. Click on the link in the first paragraph to "update your myName".
  3. Enter/update your preferred first name and click Save Changes. You can then navigate away when the Save Changes button is greyed out. It may take up to an hour for name changes to be reflected in Moodle.


This only changes your first name where possible such as your first name in Moodle. This does not legally change your name and these changes will not be applied to documents such as transcripts. 

If you are wanting to change your first name for legal reasons contact enrollment services.
