Corrections to Departmental Affiliation and Preferred Name

If your departmental affiliation or name is incorrect, please contact Human Resources to correct the error. If you continue to experience issues after contacting HR, you may contact email@example.com
Students have the ability to change their preferred display name from within the Student Information System (sis.sfu.ca). In the SIS Student Center, click on "Names" (under Personal Information") and you will see the option to edit your preferred name. After saving changes, they will take effect in the SFU Directory and the SFU Connect Global Address List (GAL) once an overnight process has run.
If you are a staff member without access to SIS, please contact Human Resources to update your preferred name.
