Preferred Names and onQ/Classlists

In an increasingly technological world, much of the interaction we have with students may not occur in person, but rather, within our online learning environments. As such, we recommend that educators provide information to their students regarding preferred names and online learning environments.


If you have a preferred name that you wish to appear in onQ and on class lists you can make this change by logging into SOLUS. Please follow the steps outlined below:

  • Log into SOLUS

  • Click on ‘Personal Information’ tab -Click on ‘Names’ tab

  • Click on ‘Add New Name’ tab

  • Choose ‘Preferred’ from the ‘Name Type’ drop down menu -Enter in preferred name and click ‘Save’

  • Please allow 24-48 hours for this preferred name to be registered within the system. If you have further questions or concerns please contact ITS at Queen’s University.
