Preferred Name Usage at USM

 If a student has not yet legally changed their name, their preferred name may still be used in MaineStreet, on class rosters, on USM Card id's, etc.  This is a new policy for the University of Maine System (August 2013), and more details will be available here in the very near future.  In the meantime, contact Sarah Holmes ( or 780-5767) for assistance.
