300.009 Chosen First Name Policy


Florida International University (FIU) recognizes that faculty, staff, and students may use names other than their legal names to identify themselves.

FIU is committed to using and adapting processes to use a chosen first name where feasible and when the use of the legal name is not required to comply with laws and FIU rules, policies, or regulations. Any faculty, staff, or student may elect to identify a chosen first name and chosen pronoun in addition to their legal name.
