If you’d like to change your legal name, you’ll need to provide the Registrar’s Office (contact Ann May) with documentation of the new legal name in the form of a court order, once the name change decree is received, we will update your official academic record with your new name. Your transcript must print your legal name, but you are able to select the name that is printed on your diploma. For diploma name changes, please contact Ann May.

You may change your chosen name, which is what appears on class rosters, as well as on the directory. Just send Ann May an email requesting that change.

The Gender and Sexuality Center’s Name Change Process page will guide your through the process for changing your name at Carleton, changing it legally in the State of Minnesota, on your Driver’s License, and more.
