Accounts - First and Last Name Changes

Procedure for first and last name changes

For employees and students, first and last names are changed automatically based on the name provided to IT via Titan Web (PeopleSoft). Usernames are never changed automatically, only first and last names are automated due to the wide-reaching impact of a user name change. Name changes are processed by IT nightly and the changes are automatically updated in email/Outlook, Gsuite, and the online directory among others.

If you would like your first or last name changed, please follow the procedure outlined here:

  • Employees: contact Human Resources. The change can either be a legal name change (for example, changing last name due to marriage) or a preferred first name (such as Bob instead of Robert).
  • Students: fill out the name change form for changing full legal name, or preferred name change form for a preferred first/middle name and send to the Registrar's office.
  • Retried, affiliated, or other accounts: contact IT to open a help desk ticket
After a name change request is processed by HR or the Registrar, IT systems will update within 1 business day. If your request has not been processed after a while, please follow up with the HR office or Registrar to verify your request has been addressed before contacting IT.
