Student Chosen Preferred Name

Beginning September 1, 2017, the Institute will permit any student who wishes to do so to identify themselves within the student information system with a chosen/preferred first name and/or a middle name or initial in addition to their legal name.  

The Institute allows students to specify a chosen/preferred first name and/or middle name or initial by filing with the Registrar’s Office a change of name form. Additional information can be found at the following website: Georgia Tech Registrar's Office Chosen/Preferred Name. 

Once the chosen/preferred name appears in Banner/OSCAR students can visit the BuzzCard Center to have a new card printed.  

All newly issued cards require identity verification which can only be done in person at the BuzzCard Center.  

New BuzzCard chosen/preferred name requests will not be mailed. 

 

The BuzzCard is an official Georgia State Identification Card and as such, is governed under State of Georgia and Homeland Security regulations.  

 

Therefore chosen/preferred name will appear on the front of the card and legal name will appear on the back.

Additionally, your BuzzCard photo will be updated with a new photo taken at the BuzzCard Center.

 

Students who return their current BuzzCard will not be charged for a new card with their chosen/preferred name.  

 

If the currently issued BuzzCard is not exchanged, a $30 card replacement fee will be assessed.
