If you woud like a different name to appear in Directory Name (e.g., a nickname), you must update your name in the SFSU Gateway. This change may take up to 24 hours from the time you make the change in the SFSU Gateway to be reflected in Directory Name. In addition, this change may affect how your name appears in other SFSU services as well.
