Your student record
Change of name
Process for changing your official name on your student record.
If you wish to change your official name from the one you used when you first enrolled with York St John University you must submit a Notification of Change of Official Name and show supporting evidence that the new name is valid, such as a birth or marriage certificate, passport, deed poll (enrolled or unenrolled) or statutory declaration of name change. Overseas students must bring their passports.

- Notification of Change of Official Name (PDF, 0.1 MB)
It is possible to change your ‘known as’ name, as well as your title and gender on your student record by email (without a form) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This change will enable a change of name on your:
- IT account
- Student/Library Card
- Moodle and Mahara accounts
- Name which University staff should refer to (for example, examination and attendance registers) wherever possible
Please note that your ‘known as’ name will not appear on your final award certificate, transcript and/or Higher Education Achievement Report.
