All students requesting a gender / name change must present 1 piece of valid Canadian government issued photo ID, or a valid international passport to begin the process. Please note:
|Change Gender||Additional documents not required to support request|
|Add, Change, or Remove a Given or Middle Name(s)||Additional documents not required to support request|
|Adding Accents/Special Characters for Diploma Printing Purposes Only||Use the Name on Diploma Form instead|
|Change Given Name / Middle Name and Surname||Additional documents required. See "Acceptable Documentation" below.|
|Change only Surname||Additional documents required. See "Acceptable Documentation" below.|
|Fourth Name Change Request Made to the Registrar's Office||All name changes after 3 require additional documents. See "Acceptable Documentation" below.|
|Alumni Request for any changes to their name||Additional documents required. See "Acceptable Documentation" below.|
It is the sole responsibility of the student to resolve or deal with issues resulting from a name change request submitted to the University of Toronto. Complications may arise with the verification of credentials and transcripts for job applications, student loans (OSAP/bank loans), taxes (T2202A), professional licensing bodies (law, dentistry, etc), and applications to other educational institutions. To avoid these issues, we advise you to consider changing your change back to your formal legal name before graduation. You may do so by submitting the form below to the Registrar's Office prior to Convocation, by the name change deadline.
