Users are not allowed to change their primary name - only their preferred name. If you have an official name change, please check with Human Resources if you're faculty/staff and the Registrar if you're a student. They require official documentation in order to process an official name change. If you need further assistance with this process, please see our FAQs: or call the Help Desk at 315-443-2677.
