Product or Service: GatherPlace, TutorPlace
Client Software: GP4
Note: Many schools assign the display name for their students and it cannot be changed without going through the school. For those schools you will need to contact the school to see if they can change it for you.

If you are taking classes at different schools where some names are assigned and enforced using the auto-configuration and account validation method, and some allow you to set the name yourself, please see this article that shows how to set up different profiles in GP4/5 for the different schools.
