Answer: Log into the MySlice Portal (https://myslice.ps.syr.edu ) and click the View/Update Names link in the Personal Services section.
Answer: Yes, after you add a Preferred Name, you have the option to delete it at any time (in reality it just gets deactivated, but you will not see your Preferred Name in MySlice or other systems until you add a new one). Please be aware that changes may take several hours to propagate to the various systems that utilize the Preferred Name Type, so you may still see a deactivated name for some time after you indicate that you would no longer like to use it.
Answer: You may change your Preferred Name as often as you choose. Please be aware that changes may take several hours to propagate to the various systems that utilize the Preferred Name Type. In addition, remember that it is your responsibility to alert faculty of this change if you wish them to use it as soon as possible.

I am an ESF student taking classes at SU (or an SU student taking classes at ESF). Where will my Preferred Name Type appear?
Answer: ESF students will not see the option to update their Preferred Name in the Syracuse University (SU) MySlice Portal as there is a separate Preferred Name procedure already in place at ESF for these students. This process can be found at the ESF Registrar website for Chosen/Preferred Names. An SU student taking classes at ESF who wishes to use a Preferred Name in ESF systems must update the Preferred Name utilizing the ESF procedure.
