Resources for Transgender Students
This is a guide to transitioning at Harvey Mudd College. Below are some resources on coming out as trans*, changing your name at the College, meeting your housing needs at Harvey Mudd, and medical resources in the greater Los Angeles and Inland Empire areas.
Harvey Mudd College has gender-neutral housing available. There are some single rooms available for first-year students. Please contact Dean Karen Sandoval (firstname.lastname@example.org), Associate Dean of Students and Director of Residential Life, to find an option that works for you. You may want to consider your roommate situation, whether you would prefer a single, and ultimately, what will make you most comfortable.
Name Change Process
HMC distinguishes between legal name changes and campus name changes. Your campus name is the name you wish to be known by on campus. You can read a detailed description of both on the Student Life Name Change Resources page. Students who wish to change either their legal name or their campus name should contact the Registrar’s Office (email@example.com). You can also read more information about Name Changes here.
Information about Gender Affirming Healthcare
The Harvey Mudd College Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) information for the 2023–2024 academic year can be found here. Fast facts about SHIP can also be found here.
Gender affirming treatment is covered by Aetna and can be found on page 15 of the benefits summary document.
