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) can be completed by following Campus HR's Preferred Name instructions. After that is complete, come back to the IdentiKey Manager to choose your shortened display name.
- One word display names are not permitted.
Go to the IdentiKey Manager website (https://identikey.colorado.edu/) and select Change My Display Name.
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.
