SESSION ROOM: ATLANTA 5
“I need to change the gender on my transcript.” “I was born male but identify as female, am I eligible for your school’s gender based scholarships” “My name is Betty but I identify as a male, am I eligible to play on your football team.” Are you ready to answer these questions? Regardless of your institutions size or profile, you are likely to be asked to deal with transgender issues for either current or former students. This session will cover all of the basic background information on transgender individuals in a common sense way. You will also receive information on how to deal with issues specific to registrar and admission offices including name and gender record changes and implications for financial aid, reporting, and diversity.
