Name Change

Legal Name Change

In order to process a legal name change, you must present an original legal document with your new legal name to the Office of Registrar.  We will make a copy of the document and then process your name change.  Once the Office of the Registrar has processed the change, LTS will be notified to work with you on any necessary changes to your computing accounts.  If you have questions about your computing accounts, please contact the Wellesley College Help Desk directly.

Preferred Name Change

To change your preferred first name, submit an email request to the Office of the Registrar (see Contact Us - Name Changes).  Please include your current full legal name, your B number, and your preferred first name.  Once the change has been entered, you will receive an email message.  LTS will then be notified to work with you on any necessary changes to your computing accounts.  If you have questions about your computing accounts, please contact the Wellesley College Help Desk directly.

You also have the option to have your preferred name printed on your OneCard, rather than your legal name.  If you choose this option, contact Campus Police directly.
