The online student services interface, which is called TigerHub, lets students choose from one or more of the following genders: ‘Cisgender,’ ‘Genderqueer/gender non-conform[ing],’ ‘Trans/transgender,’ ‘Man,’ ‘Woman,’ and ‘Other’.
‘Students use TigerHub to provide the University with personal information on a confidential basis,’ a university spokesman told Fox News.
‘This information includes emergency contacts, their preferred name, and, if they wish to provide it in response to an optional question, the gender with which they identify.’
The optional form, entitled ‘Update Gender Identity,’ was recently added to TigerHub when an update was done, Campus Reform reported.
Students at the prestigious Ivy League school can also select to be both female and male.
Making the selection on TigerHub is not a requirement by the school.
The online form reads: ‘You may select multiple gender identities. Your gender identity is confidential and is not generally available.’
The private school isn’t the alone in the move to allow students several gender options.
Roughly 50 colleges or university allow students to select their genders without medical intervention or documentation, the Washington Post reported.
The University of Michigan even allows students the option of creating their own designated pronouns.
