VERY, VERY IMPORTANT NOTE
You will notice that there are fields for your name on this screen. However, if you need to change your name, Do not change it here! Because your name is one of the pieces of information that are automatically imported from the UNC database, whatever changes you make on this screen will be wiped out within twenty-four hours — the interval at which the School directory links up with the UNC database to refresh the information. Instead, if you want to change your name, you must do it through https://my.unc.edu (see the Name section of this guide for instructions).
