Changing your name on your certificate

How do I change my name on my certificate?

If you've changed your name since graduating from UWA, we can update your name so you can order a Statement of Academic Record and/or Statement of Qualifications with your new name. A degree certificate that has been conferred (graduated) cannot be reissued in a different name. If you have changed your name and undergone a gender reassignment, we can reissue your documents free of charge.
If you have not yet had your award conferred (graduated), provide one of the following original documents listing your name to be recorded on your student record:
  • change of name certificate 
  • birth certificate
  • passport
  • marriage certificate
You can bring your original documentation to Student Administration for your name to be updated, before applications to graduate close. If you live outside of Perth (interstate or overseas) and not able to see us in person, post certified copies signed by one of the following:
  • A Justice of the Peace
  • Commissioner of Declarations
  • A notary public
  • A person who is permitted to witness documents
If you have not yet graduated, before you apply to graduate you can request the order of your name be changed, or correct your name if you have changed it since enrolling at the University or it’s not recorded correctly. Once your name has been updated, you can complete your application to graduate in studentConnect.
