Gender identity is not shared with class instructors or other campus partners, including health services. Authorized campus employees with access to your bio-demographic information will also not have access to view your gender identity.

When you confirmed your enrollment to the campus, some of your personal information, like your name, ID number and demographic information, was made available to campus employees who work with you, including staff, faculty, and some student employees. If you decide to share your personal pronouns, your pronouns will be included along with other information provided to campus employees. Examples of where your personal pronouns will be available include the class roster provided to instructors and staff including your photo and the student record in campus systems that advisors and other student services staff use to work with you.

Sexual orientation is not shared with class instructors or other campus partners, including health services. Authorized campus employees with access to your bio-demographic information will also not have access to your sexual orientation.

For additional information and instructions for students, see these instructions on changing biographic fields. For additional information for faculty and staff regarding class roster view, see these instructions on adding pronouns to class rosters.
