Updating Personal Information

Change of Name:
A name change requires legal documentation. Acceptable forms are a social security card, a birth certificate, passport, or a court order stating your former and new name. Be sure to bring original official documentation. Copies of a legal document cannot be accepted unless they have been attested.
Chosen First Name:
Caldwell University recognizes that some members of the CU community identify with names other than their legal names (“Chosen Names”). The University acknowledges that a University community member’s Chosen Names can and should be used where possible in the course of University education, communication, and business.
For students whose chosen first name does not reflect the legal name on file, please contact email@example.com. Your legal name may be required on official documentation released by the University, such as but not limited to: Financial Aid, National Student Clearinghouse, transcripts, diplomas, certifications, athletic rosters, federal requests, department of public safety, etc. Chosen names may appear on: university ID, class rosters, and blackboard.
Prohibited Use of Chosen Names. Chosen Names shall not be used for the purpose of misrepresentation, avoiding legal obligations, or otherwise in any manner that violates University policies or federal, state, or local laws. Chosen Names that are not administratively possible to implement, including, without limitation, symbols or images, are prohibited. The University reserves the right to remove any Chosen Name without prior notice to, or consent from, the individual due to misuse or abuse of this Chosen Name Policy, including, but not limited to, misrepresentation, attempting to avoid legal obligations or the use of highly offensive or derogatory names. Chosen Namesames can be up to 30 characters in length and should only include standard European characters.
