Update Name/Address

Urbana University students wishing to change their permanent home address should contact the Registrar’s Office on the Urbana University Campus and complete the UPDATE OF NAME and ADDRESS form (PDF).  Students may not use their Urbana University campus address as a permanent address.

According to AACRAO, the two major considerations to changing a student name include desire to accommodate the student and the need to safeguard the integrity of the academic records, specifically the transcript.

Based upon AACRAO recommendations for student populations, Urbana University students will change names based upon the following guidelines:

All currently enrolled students will be afforded the opportunity to change their names on university records upon receipt of evidence that the student name has been legally changed.

The student will be required to complete the Request for Update of Name and Address form and provide the official documentation in the form of a marriage license, court order, or dissolution decree which reflects the new name in full.

For non-US citizens, the student will be required to complete the Request for Update of Name and Address form and provide the current passport or official proof of identity; certified by US embassy abroad or by the appropriate foreign embassy in the US.

From Our Alumni

"Urbana University gave me the opportunity to flourish as a student, as an athlete, and, more importantly, as a person. Urbana taught me that it is not our successes that make us who we are, but instead it is our failures that reveal our true character."
