SIS Preferred Name

Students have two names in SIS: their preferred name and their SIS primary (or legal) name. The preferred name can be changed anytime and will appear on class rosters, UVA email, and the SIS student center. To update your preferred name please visit the ITS Identity & Access Management Portal (NetBadge Login).

SIS Primary Name

The SIS primary (legal) name appears on the official transcript and diploma and can be changed only with appropriate supporting documentation (copy of court order name change, driver’s license, marriage certificate, passport, or social security card). To update your SIS primary name please complete the SIS Primary Name Update Form.

SIS Gender Marker

When a student applies to UVA they voluntarily self-identified information about their demographic characteristics that are carried over into their student record. While these are not accessible to students to update through the Student Information System (SIS) dashboard, students can request that the gender marker be changed by completing the Gender Update Form.

Social Security Number

Students can request their social security number to be added or updated in SIS at any time. This information will only be updated with appropriate documentation of a signed social security card. To add or update your social security number in SIS please complete the SIS Social Security Number Update Form.
