How can I change my name on campus?

To change your name and prefix used on your file, please email the Office of the Registrar at enrolsrv@mun.ca. Email them stating whether your legal name is changed, what your “preferred name” is, and what your prefix is.

It will take about a week to get everything changed over
It is important to note that the name on mail correspondence and your transcript can’t be changed without your legal name changed.
If you have any difficulties or suggestions with how to improve this system, please email them to registrar@mun.ca
What do I do if I experience discrimination on campus?
Firstly, if you are experiencing discrimination at any point, it is not your fault. You should never have to deal with discrimination, but in case you do have to, here are some options on what you can do:

Make an appointment with the Director of Advocacy or the Queer or Trans Reps, if you are an undergraduate student
Speak to the Head of the Department you are taking the class in. They may be able to do something to help you in this situation.
Speak to the Director of Student Life about options you have. (If this is correct)
If all else fails, you may go to the Human Rights Commission with your complaint.
