Name Change on Campus Records
For students who have NOT obtained a legal name change
Effective September 1, 2017, students can opt to add a chosen/preferred first and/or middle name to campus records in Banner. This name will populate to any campus records where a legal name is not required such as class rosters, Buzzport, and the GT Directory. It will not populate to records where a legal name is required such as payroll and financial aid. You may not change your last name on campus records without a court ordered name change.
For full details of how to add your chosen/preferred name to campus records, please visit the Registrar's website. You will also need to complete a Name Change Form, indicating that you wish to declare a chosen/preferred name.
For students who HAVE obtained a legal name change
Students who have obtained a legal name change may request that the Office of the Registrar update their campus records to reflect their new name. Students should be advised that some entities on campus may use records systems that do not pull from Banner, and that they may need to contact administrators of those systems individually as they become aware of them to ensure that their name is updated everywhere.
