Your records at Ball State University are built from your initial admission to the university. In order to keep all your records updated and maintained with your legal name you will need to provide the Registrar's Office with any changes to your legal name using the Name Change Request form. A name change request allows you to modify your academic record to reflect a change in your legal name.
To protect the integrity of your academic record, we require your written authorization and documentary proof of your name change. If unable to use the Name Change Request form, your written authorization should include:
Documentary proof of your name change should include at least one of the following:
If returning this form by mail, fax, or scan/email, copies of legal documents should be included with the Name Change Form.
Please note: If you are submitting a copy of divorce papers, please do not include any provisions other than that ordering the name change. That is, include only the jurisdiction (court, county, state), the name of the parties, the name change provision, signature and date of the judge or clerk of the court.
