A request to change your name in the Banner Student System must be made in person at the University Office of the Registrar, located in the Curtis Building, Room G-22.

Please note, name changes to student records will be made only in the following cases:

  • Change due to marriage/divorce.
    Document needed to be provided: A copy of the marriage certificate or final divorce decree.
  • Legal name change (i.e. adoption, court order).

Document needed to be provided: A copy of the legal document ordering or verifying the change.

In the rare event that a name change request is due to a clerical error, a driver's license or similar government-issued identification is sufficient verification.

A request to change your social security number in the University's administrative systems must be made in person at the appropriate office.

If you are a student-employee and your social security number is incorrect in the university personnel system, you must present your social security card which reflects your correct social security number to the Department of Human Resources, 1st Floor, Martin Building.

If you are a student, and are not employed with the University, please bring your social security card to the University Office of the Registrar, located in the Curtis Building, Room G-22.

Please note, if your are correcting your Social Security Number, we advise you to check with other administrative offices (e.g. Student Financial Aid) to ensure this correction is reflected in documents you previously submitted to those departments.
