Some people elect to go by a name other than their legal first name. This chosen name could be a nickname, a middle name, or a personally selected name. For example, students, including international students, sometimes choose to adopt an English language nickname and transgender people often adopt a name consistent with their gender identity. Any member of the Mason community who wishes to use a chosen first name and pronouns may do so under this policy via Patriot Web.
