Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Student Data

As of Fall 2016, the University of California maintains four fields related to gender and sexual orientation. Those fields are as follows:

  1. Gender: male; female; nonbinary
  2. Gender Identity: female; male; trans female/trans woman; trans male/trans man; genderqueer/gender non-conforming; different identity
  3. Sexual Orientation: heterosexual/straight; gay or lesbian; bisexual; not listed/other

Only Gender data was collected for students admitted prior to Fall 2016.

Starting Fall 2019 nonbinary was added as a category to Gender.

Continuing and new graduate students do not have data collected for Sexual Orientation.


Updating Gender and Sexual Orientation Fields

Students may change their Gender, Gender Identity, and Sexual Orientation fields by submitting a request through the Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation application via StudentAccess. No validation or additional processes are required.
