UC updates gender marker policy

University of Cincinnati students can now change their gender markers with the university’s registrar office. Students must submit a letter of support from a licensed medical professional, but this letter does not have to indicate a diagnosis of Gender Identity Disorder.

But, the text of this letter:

  • Must be printed on the physician or psychologist/therapist’s letterhead stationery;
  • Must include the student’s full legal name;
  • Must affirm that the student is sufficiently ready for or has completed a gender role and transition, and that it is intended that the role change is to be permanent; and
  • Must be dated, and must bear the signature of the physician or psychologist/therapist.

This letter must also accompany the Gender Marker Update Request form.

This new UC policy better matches the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles policy for changing gender markers on state I.D.s.

A big thanks to GenderBloc and the University of Cincinnati Office of the Registrar for partnering to make this policy change.
