Purpose

To facilitate effective communication with students and to ensure accuracy of student records.

Policy

The College expects students to report any name, address, intended program/major, telephone number or other record changes on the form available at www.minnesota.edu/form.

Students who have name changes must provide the legal documentation as specified on the form available at www.minnesota.edu/forms. Degrees are awarded under the name the student has on file at the time the degree requirements are completed.

Academic records are maintained under a student’s legal name at the time of enrollment. Academic records and credentials are not modified unless the student has an active registration with the College.
