Name Change Information

A request to change your name must be made in person at the appropriate office.

  • If you are a student and have never been employed by the University, present legal documentation (such as a marriage license, passport, court order, and/or social security card) and photo ID reflecting your new name to Records to change your name.
  • If you are a student and current employee at any University of Illinois location, present your updated Social Security Card, as legal documentation reflecting the change, to the person responsible for human resources in your employing unit. In addition, review the Personnel Information tab in NESSIE for other places you may need to update your name.
  • If you are a student and have not been employed by the University within the last 18 months, present legal documentation (such as a marriage license, passport, court order, and/or social security card) and photo ID reflecting your new name to Records to change your name.
  • If you are a student and your employment with the University has ended within the last 18th months, present your updated Social Security Card, as legal documentation reflecting the change to the UIS Human Resource Office at:

  • If you are currently employed or were previously employed by the University of Illinois, employee names on record with the University must be the legal name on record with the US Social Security Administration.
