Students Can Now Update Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Optional Demographic Info in Student Record

Since 2016, the UC Admissions Application has included optional demographic questions regarding sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). Now UCR students can update this information, or add info if they were admitted to UCR before 2016, by using R'Web Self-Service. The UCR update form also expands the answer options compared to the UC Admissions Application form. Answering SOGI demographic questions is always optional.This information as a group will help UCR develop resources for a more inclusive campus environment. Individual student info, like all student record info, is protected by federal privacy laws. Check out the FAQs regarding SOGI data by clicking here .


Preferred Names for UCR Students Now Available Via R'Web Self-Serve

The UCR students have the option of creating a Preferred Name for use on campus. FAQs are online as a PDF here: visit the Registrar's FAQ page: 

You are able to use a Preferred Name on your R'Card, R;Mail, iLearn, iEval, the faculty grade rosters in iGrade, and for departmental reporting purposes. Students have many reasons for wanting to use a Preferred Name, whether because they use a nick name, an “Americanized" name, or because they've chosen a name that reflects their gender identity.
