How to request a name change for Baylor records?
Baylor University requires that an individual's full LEGAL name be included on the student's records. Upon admission to the University, every effort is made to ascertain the applicant's LEGAL name. Once the legal name has been determined, that becomes the official name of record. It will only be changed by the Office of the Registrar upon presentation of a written request and a legal document to validate the name change.
What are acceptable legal documents?
The legal document must be the original document or a certified copy of the original document. Photocopies and faxes are not acceptable.
- birth certificate
- marriage certificate/license
- divorce decree including reinstatement of former name
- court order for legal name change
- adoption documents
