Personal Data: New Name Prefix Option

A new non-gender name prefix, “Mx,” has been added to PeopleSoft HRMS.  The name prefix is used for correspondence to employees from UHD and the University of Houston System.

If you prefer to be addressed by “Mx” in your correspondence, you can change your name prefix in People Advantage Self Service (P.A.S.S.) by following the instructions below:

  1. Log-in to P.A.S.S.
  2. Click on My Personal Info
  3. Select Legal Name
  4. Click on arrow
  5. Select “Mx” from the Name Prefix pull down menu and click Save 
  6. Select Preferred Name Change
  7. Click on Edit Pref Name
  8. Select “Mx” from the Name Prefix pull down menu and click Save 

Your Preferred Name prefix will automatically be changed in PeopleSoft HRMS.  However, a Legal Name prefix change requires ESO-Payroll approval before the prefix is changed in PeopleSoft HRMS, but submission of a social security card will not be required.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact

We trust the new name prefix accommodates employees who prefer not to be identified by gender in correspondence.
