All name change requests must be submitted with supporting documentation. Changes to the first, middle, and/or last name, suffix, or sequence of names will require the original or a certified copy of one of the following:
- Government Issued ID (driver license, state ID card, valid passport)
- Birth Certificate
- Marriage Certificate
- Court Order (must show change to new name)
- Divorce Decree (must show change to new name)
- Certificate of Naturalization/Green Card
We do not require documentation to add/delete a hyphen, space, apostrophe, or to abbreviate a middle name to initial.
If you are unable to visit the office in-person, a Demographic Change Form with supporting documentation can be mailed to the address below. E-mails will only be accepted from NMSU.EDU e-mail address. Incomplete forms or forms submitted with incomplete documentation will not be processed.
