If you’d like to change your official name on your transcript and diploma, 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 they receive it, the Registrar’s Office will update your official academic record with your new name.
You may also change your preferred 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.
