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 1Capen, we recommend that you bring your original documentation to us and complete the request in person. If this is not possible, complete the Student Name Change Form and attach notarized copies of your documentation.
