Drake University allows a student to submit a preferred name that will appear in place of the student's legal name in certain university records. The preferred name will appear instead of the person's legal name in university related documents except where the use of the legal name is required by university business or legal need. Electing to use a preferred first name will not change a student's legal name. The University may disallow or remove a preferred name if it contains inappropriate or offensive language or is being used for misrepresentation.
