UTSA Name Change
Official changes to the first, middle, and/or last name will require submission of a Name and ID Number Change form and at least two forms of supporting documentation indicating the new legal name (two primary identifications or one primary + one secondary).
Requests submitted without necessary documentation will not be processed.

Students who are current or former employees of UTSA must also visit Human Resources to change their name.
Preferred Name Policy
The University of Texas at San Antonio recognizes that some students prefer to use a first or middle name other than their legal name to identify themselves. Students can submit a preferred name online through the Personal Information tab within their ASAP account.
The Office of the Registrar reserves the right to decline a request if the preferred name is deemed to be inappropriate. Once your preferred name request has been approved by UTSA, it will appear in the following locations:
- Class Roster
- Class Photo
- Mid-term grade report
- Final grade report
- UTSA Mobile App
Your preferred name will not appear on your official transcript or your diploma.
