ONID - Change How My Name Appears



  • How do I set my name format on my ONID account?
  • How do I remove my middle name from displaying in the Exchange email directory?


  • Oregon State University
  • ONID Account


Names on ONID accounts are set as they appear in our system of record, Banner.

You can make some changes to your name as it appears in ONID without changing your name in Banner. Changing your ONID name format will effect systems connected to ONID, including the OSU Online Directory, OSU Email, G Suite, Office365, Zoom, and Box. 

Caution: The ONID tool to change a forgotten password requires you to enter your first and last name. If you use that tool, you will need to enter your name in the same format that you have set in ONID, not what is listed in Banner.


To set your name format in ONID:

  1. Browse to http://onid.oregonstate.edu
  2. Select "Login to ONID" on the left and enter your ONID username and password
  3. Select "Profile" in the menu on the left
  4. Choose from the available options and click on "Set Name Format" to save the change 

For assistance, contact the IS Service Desk.
