Name, Address and Ethnicity Changes

Name Changes

Students may change their names on their official academic record by submitting a Name Change Request to the Registrar's Office. Name Change Requests that are missing the corresponding documentation will not be processed. Current and former employees should contact the Payroll Office to have their names changed, even if the employee has a student record.

Download the Name Change Request Form

Name Change Requests must include one of the following documents (photocopies permitted):

  • A valid driver’s license
  • A valid state ID
  • A valid passport
  • A birth certificate
  • A marriage license
  • A divorce decree authorizing the name change
  • A judicial decree specifically authorizing a name change
  • Naturalization papers

Students who have already applied to graduate and wish to have the new name appear on their diploma must check the corresponding box provided on the form.

International Students

If you are not a US citizen, the name on your UO records must match the name on your passport. A copy of this document must be attached for processing. If you have questions about this policy, contact the International Affairs Office at (541) 346-3206 or visit them in person at 330 Oregon Hall.

How to Enter or Update your Preferred First Name Through DuckWeb

  1. Login to duckweb.uoregon.edu using your UO ID Number and PAC
  2. Select "Personal Information"
  3. Select "Enter/Update Preferred First Name"
  4. Enter your preferred first name in the text box provided, then click “Submit”

If you do not have a DuckWeb account, you may use the Name Change Request Form to submit your preferred first name.

Preferred first name appears on class lists, in Canvas, on most advising and student pages in DuckWeb, and in the Find People online directory. Note that Find People is refreshed overnight.

The Preferred First Name policy can be found in the Policy Library.
