Colleges and Universities that Allow Students to Have the Name and Pronouns They Use for Themselves on Campus Records

Developed by Dr. Genny Beemyn – Last updated 7/9/23

At least 813 colleges enable students to use a chosen first name, instead of their legal/dead name, on campus records and documents (such as course rosters, campus ID cards, and directory listings).

At least 297 colleges enable students to indicate the pronouns they use for themselves on course rosters (indicated by double asterisks**). 

KEY:
**Colleges and universities that allow students to indicate the pronouns they use for themselves on course rosters are indicated with double asterisks.
🚫 States with a ban symbol by their names currently have no colleges or universities that allow students to have the name and pronouns they use for themselves on campus records.
