Changing your display name in Moodle

How to get your Moodle display name changed

  1. Log into myLane and find the block for Personal information under the Home tab. Click on Name Change Information.
  2. Click on the link in the first paragraph to "update your myName".
  3. Enter/update your preferred first name and click Save Changes. You can then navigate away when the Save Changes button is greyed out.

Note: This only changes your first name where possible such as your firstname in Moodle. This does not legally change your name and these changes will not be applied to documents such as transcripts. If you are wanting to change your first name for legal reasons contact enrollment services.
