Change of Student Information

Change of Name

Students are responsible for informing the Registrar of any name changes that occur during the semester. Proof of the name change must be submitted along with a Name Change Form requesting the name change. International Students should also inform the Designated School Official/Immigration Advisor. 

Acceptable documentation for student name changes include the following:

1. Photographic documents showing the new name.

    • Ex. Driver's license, passport, alien registration card
    • Can be used to document a name change for any reason

2. Legal documents showing the former and new name.

    • Ex. Marriage certificate, divorce decree, naturalization papers, court approval of name change
    • Can be used to document name change for completed change or first or last name

3. Notarized statement declaring two variations as representing the same person.

    • For instance, "John V. Brown" is the name on BAC records; "J. Vernon Brown" is the name requested
    • Can be used for variation of the existing name
