Name: Verification of Name
Revision, June 2013. Start of revision.
You should verify the accuracy of your name on McGill's student records via Minerva (www.mcgill.ca/minerva). To do this, go to Personal Menu > Name Change, where you can make minor corrections such as changing case (upper/lower), adding accents, and spacing. You can also add a preferred first name that is different from your legal first name, and it will be used internally at McGill. For more information on the Preferred First Name Procedure, see www.mcgill.ca/students/records/address/preferred.
Note that you cannot change your legal name via Minerva. Requests for such changes must be made by presenting official documents (see Name: Legal Name and Name: Preferred First Name) in person at Service Point, 3415 McTavish Street, Montreal, Quebec, H3A 0C8.
Revision, June 2013. End of revision.
