Record Your Name Pronunciation


You can record your name in SIS to help others with correct pronunciation. This might be useful if your name has multiple pronunciations or is commonly mispronounced.

After recording your name, faculty and staff will be able to hear the recording within 24 hours. The recording will also be available in Canvas to faculty and classmates. Please follow the steps below to record your name.
