You can request a change in your legal name by completing the Change of Legal Name form. The form must be submitted with at least one of the following supporting documents:
a certified court order, marriage license, divorce decree, social security card, passport, etc. reflecting your new legal name. All supporting documentation must be in English or be submitted with a certified English translation.
All official university documents, including but not limited to transcripts, verification letters, and diplomas, will reflect a student's legal name (as it appears on a legal or government-issued document such as a birth certificate, Social Security card,
court order, or passport) after the change has been approved. Current or former students wishing to obtain replacements for their university documents with their changed legal name will need to so by requesting new copies or replacements of those
documents (charges may apply).
