Change of Name
A student's name of record is the name under which the student was admitted to Connecticut College and is assumed to be legal, official and accurate. Students may submit a preferred name, which will be displayed to the College community. For more information, please see the College's preferred name information and frequently asked questions (FAQ).
Students can submit their preferred name in CamelWeb. After logging into CamelWeb, select the menu icon in the header (it looks like 3 stacked horizontal lines), then select "Name Preferences" from the Account section. The change can also be made in the CC Mobile app.
In order to protect students against identify theft, legal name changes will only be recorded if there is evidence of a legal name change. Please provide the legal name change document (typically a court order) to the Office of the Registrar when requesting a name change. Student employees must also submit an updated I-9 form to the financial aid office. Please note that U.S. citizens (or non-US citizens working in the US) must change their names with the Social Security Administration as well.
Alumni should contact the Office of Alumni Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org for name changes.
Change of Address/Phone Number
Changes to addresses and phone numbers must be submitted by the student in CamelWeb. After logging into CamelWeb, select the menu icon in the header (it looks like 3 stacked horizontal lines), then select "My Contact Info" from the Account section. The change can also be made in the CC Mobile app.
If you have graduated from the College and have subsequently changed your name legally, you may request a replacement diploma. You must submit a notarized application form, photocopies of two forms of identification, a copy of the legal name change document and the fee for the replacement diploma. Upon receipt of these documents, a replacement diploma will be issued and your student record will be updated.
