Overview

This name is displayed in the "From:" line of email messages you send. If you wish to use a display name that is not listed, please contact the IT Service Center.

Requesting a new display name: 

  • A display name must consist of a first name, or nickname, and the legal last name that exists in a source system (SIS for students, PeopleSoft for faculty/staff).
  • If the requested display name is to include a middle name, that middle name must also be in a source system.
  • Requests for shortened names (e.g. James = Jim, Kimberly = Kim) will be processed without a source system update.
  • One word display names are not permitted.

Step 1

Go to the IdentiKey Manager website (https://identikey.colorado.edu/) and select Change My Display Name

Step 2

Enter your CULoginName and IdentiKey password then click Continue.

Step 3

Click on the Your New Display Name drop-down menu to select one of your alternates. If you wish to use a display name that is not listed but that reflects your official name, please contact the IT Service Center

Once you've selected an alternate display name, click Save.
