Name Changes

The name printed on a replacement or duplicate diploma defaults to the name appearing on the student’s university record. To change the name imprinted on your diploma, you must submit a name change request and provide supporting legal documentation — marriage certificate or passport — via fax, email, or in-person delivery to the registrar’s office (1244 Blossom Street in Columbia).
