Use of Preferred Name

Full Sail University serves a large community of diverse individuals. To ensure that all students enjoy a supportive school environment, students may choose to use a Preferred Name, such as a middle name, not necessarily their Legal Name under this policy. This opportunity is also available for international students who want to use an Americanized name, any student who prefers to go by a middle name or shortened first name, and LGBTQ students.

Additionally, when a student notifies the school administration that the student will assert a gender identity that differs from previous representations or records, the school will begin treating the student consistent with the student’s gender identity. There are no legal or medical documents required, nor will the school ask for any documents if the student makes this request.
