Name Changes


Name changes can not be done within SalukiNet Self-Service.  Instead, please complete a Name Change Request Form.  (If you have problems opening that form, try this one instead.)  Then present the completed form to the Registrar's Office in the Student Services Building, room 0251, along with official identifying documentation.  Acceptable forms of ID include a state-issued picture ID and one of the following:

  • Marriage Certificate
  • Divorce Decree
  • Court Order
  • Birth Certificate
  • Passport (for international students)

If you cannot come to our office in person, you may submit the completed form and copies of the official documentation by mail to the following:

SIU Registrar's Office
Student Services Building, Room 0251
Mail Code 4701
1263 Lincoln Drive
Carbondale, IL 62901

You may also fax the request to (618) 453-2915.  If you have any questions about this, you may call (618) 453-2999 during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM CT).

This name change will affect only your SIU student records.  If you are also an employee, graduate assistant, or student worker, you will need to contact Human Resources and/or Payroll to update your name within their system.
