Name Change

Name changes are done by the UST Registrar’s Office.  The law alumni office is happy to assist law alumni with initiating a name change with UST.  You can send a PDF copy of one of the following forms of legal documents to lawalumni@stthomas.edu:

  • Social Security Card: The card must have the correct/current name (a copy of both the back and front of the card are required). The number on the card will need to match the number that we have on the system in order for this form of documentation to be accepted.
  • Marriage License: A copy with both the old/previous and new/changed name included in the documentation.
  • Divorce Papers: A copy with both the old/previous and new/changed name included in the documentation.
  • Court Ordered Documentation: A copy with both the old/previous and new/changed name included in the documentation.
  • Driver’s License that reflects name change; must be valid (non-expired); and Social Security Card with current name.

NOTE: The Registrar’s Office does not change names when they receive a form or letter that indicates a name has changed without first having the required documents, as outlined above.
