Preferred First Name Policy
The Registrar’s Office is responsible for issuing ID Badges to students of LSU Health Sciences Center- New Orleans. ID Badges are used for identification purposes and used for security access throughout campus.
ID badges display a student’s name photo, and school on the front of the ID badge. The legal name, student ID number, and signature will be visible on the back of the ID badge. ID badges can display preferred first name on the front of the ID badge with the completion of the form Application for Preferred First Name Student ID Badge. The legal name and signature will remain on the back of the ID badge.
A preferred name will only be available for ID badges and will not apply to LSUHSC email addresses, transcripts, enrollment verifications, and diplomas. All persons must present a government issued photo ID, such as a license or passport when receiving their initial or replacement badges. Badges will only be released to the person named on the badge unless otherwise approved.
A student will need to come to our office and turn in their current student ID card along with the application. If your ID badge is lost, there is a replacement fee of $10.00.
Our office hours are Monday – Friday 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. However, we are closed from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. for lunch.
