Changing your name on your enrolment

I did not enrol under my full/current name. How do I change it?

It is important for you to ensure the University has your full legal name recorded and spelled correctly on your enrolment.

If you need to change the way your name is recorded, you can provide one of the following original documents in person at Student Administration:

  • A Change of Name certificate from the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages
  • A Marriage Certificate
  • A Birth Certificate
  • A current Passport showing your full name

If you can't come to Student Administration to show us original documentation you can send us a certified copy.

You will also need to surrender your UWA Campus Card, so a new one can be printed with your correct name by Student Administration.

Once the change has been processed, your new name will appear on your Academic Record and your degree certificate.

NOTE: the University's Statutes do not allow your names as they appear on your certificate to be altered or amended once your award has been conferred.

(Your preferred name, if different to your official name, will not be shown on official university documents.)
