Changing Last Name
All university correspondence addressed to students is based on the current name of record
in the UWSP Student Information System (myPoint).
Process to Change Last Name
Students enrolled at UWSP may change their last name by providing the Registrar's Office with appropriate documentation and a Change of Name Form
- Marriage License/Certificate
- Adoption Papers
- Court Order
- Passport/Permanent Visa
- Driver's License
- Divorce Decree

A student's updated name of record will be disclosed as "directory information" unless the student refuses to permit such disclosure. For further information on disclosure of directory information, please refer to UWSP Guidelines for Compliance with the Family Educational rights and Privacy Act
(FERPA). Printed directories for currently enrolled students are produced in mid-September. Name changes that are processed after this date will be reflected in online directories only.
