LSUMail: Update Display Name

LSUMail Display Name

The display name information is updated automatically based on information provided to the university. If a user requests a name change (for example, if they get married or divorced and request the name change through Human Resources), this information will also change in LSUMail.  If you prefer an alternative name or nick name to display in LSUMail, you can update the Display Name in the myLSU Portal.

NOTE: The steps below only change the Display Name for the LSUMail account associated with your primary myLSU account. To change a display name for a non-primary account, please contact the ITS Service Desk. This change will need to be completed by the e-mail team.
