Changing First or Middle Name
All university correspondence addressed to students is based on the current name of record
in the UWSP Student Information System (accesSPoint).
Process to Change First or Middle Name
Effect of Preferred Name Changes on Student Records
A student's preferred name change will be reflected in online directory information, class rosters, grade rosters, Student Services Center in accesSPoint, and the degree audit. Student employment records will not be impacted by name changes.
Please be advised that changing your first name with the university is not the same as legally changing your name through the courts. If you have a legal name change, please complete the Change of Primary Name Form and provide supporting documentation.
Disclaimer: This policy does not form a contract of any kind and may be modified, changed, altered, or rescinded by UWSP at its discretion.
