Beloit College Preferred Name Policy

To encourage a more open and welcoming campus community environment, Beloit College has established a policy whereby any community member has the option to use a "preferred" first and/or middle name on campus wherever possible. We strive to have this name appear wherever a legal name is not necessary.

More information about the preferred name policy and the request form can be found on the Registrar's website.
