Faculty and Staff
Employee name changes are processed in the Human Resource Services office located in Library 3102. Employees need to present the correct documentation in person along with a complete name change request form available here or at the Human Resource Services office.
Faculty and staff who are teaching or carrying Learning Contracts/Internships report name changes to the Dean's area support staff on the second floor of the Library building.
If you are an employee (faculty, staff, or student) federal regulations require employers to validate that the employee's name on record exactly matches the name which appears on the individual's social security card to ensure proper tax reporting.
