University policy is to maintain educational records under the student’s full, legal name. This is normally first name, middle initial and last name. For international students, the name maintained on the educational records will be the same as the one that appears on their passport and U.S. immigration documentation, including the Form I-20, Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant. Official documents such as diplomas and transcripts will not be issued bearing any other name.

A student may change the name on his or her permanent academic record by presenting a government-issued photo ID to the Office of the University Registrar showing the updated name.

Current students may send such notification to registrar@ua.edu from their Crimson Mail account. Former students may send signed requests to:

Students (including former students and alumni) may request a correction to their SSN by mailing a signed letter to the Office of the University Registrar. If a student’s SSN is incorrect, the student must provide a copy of documentation to support the correction. Such documentation would include presentation of a social security identification card.Signed requests for a SSN correction may be mailed to:

Note: While the Office of the University Registrar will amend a record upon presentation of appropriate documentation, a cross-reference of the change will be created to preserve the historical record and for verification and credential fraud purposes.

The University of Alabama collects a student’s sex (male/female) at the time of admission for official reporting purposes.  This information is not included on a student’s academic transcript or other official documentation.  To change the designation, a student should notify the Office of the University Registrar.
