You need to attach appropriate certified supporting documentation for your application to be processed.

Are you ready to graduate?

Strict deadlines apply to change your name for graduation. Check the dates on the Graduation website before submitting this application.

If you miss the deadline, your next opportunity to change your name will be after your degree is conferred and your graduation documents are issued.

If you would like your graduation documents to be reissued to reflect your new name after graduation, then see the AskACU article 'Can I get a replacement testamur in my new name?
