Change of Name and/or Gender Identity

BMCC employees and students can opt to update or change their given name (first and/or middle) to their preferred name as well as update or change their gender identity and pronouns. No documentation is needed to update a preferred name or preferred gender identity. You can also request a new BMCC ID card and/or email address reflecting the updated information.

For additional support and questions, students, faculty and staff, can also reach out to The Office of Compliance and Diversity.
