How to change your preferred/display name in MySlice

Log Into MySlice
Please find the "Personal Services" applet. Select "View/Update Names."
Next to "Preferred" click on "edit."

PRIMARY NAME CHANGE
Users are not allowed to change their primary name - only their preferred name. If you have an official name change, please check with Human Resources if you're faculty/staff and the Registrar if you're a student. They require official documentation in order to process an official name change. If you need further assistance with this process, please see our FAQs: https://answers.syr.edu/x/RQqwAg or call the Help Desk at 315-443-2677.
