Student Name

As either a current or a former student, you may have a need to update the name associated with your academic record. Typical reasons for a name change include marriage, divorce, naturalization, use of a variation of your name, etc.

If you need to have your name changed, we must change all of your records to reflect the new name. Then, your UB financial records, your future academic transcripts, and your future diploma will carry only that new name.

If you are able to visit the Student Response Center (232 Capen), we recommend that you bring your original documentation to us and complete the request in person. If this is not possible, print the Student Name Change Form (PDF), attach notarized copies of your documentation, and mail the information to the Student Response Center.
