How to Change Your Name or Gender on Your Student Record

There are two sections of your student record that you may change with appropriate documentation and forms: your name and your gender.

Changing Your Name

Your official academic records reflect the name originally listed on your application for admission to Marylhurst University. Current and former students may request a change of name by submitting a name change form to the Office of the Registrar along with documentation that the name has been legally changed. A copy of any one of the following may serve as documentation:

  • Current driver’s license
  • Social Security card
  • Court order
  • Marriage license
  • Dissolution degree
  • Current passport
  • Official proof of identity, certified by U.S. embassy abroad or by appropriate foreign embassy in the U.S.

The change will be reflected in the student information system only. No changes will be made to archived documents or to records maintained outside the Office of the Registrar.

Note for degree candidates: A name change requested after submission of the graduation application will not result in a change of name on the diploma. Please contact the Office of the Registrar to request a change of diploma name (registrar@marylhurst.edu).

Changing Your Gender

Your official academic records reflect the gender originally listed on your application for admission to Marylhurst University. Current and former students may request in writing through the Office of the Registrar a change of gender. The written request must include a signed and dated personal statement requesting the change.

Students requesting a gender change may also request a name change according to the university name change policy. Alumni may request a new diploma reflecting the changed name according to the university diploma replacement policy.

The change will be reflected in the student information system only. No changes will be made to archived documents or to records maintained outside the Office of the Registrar.
