We are keen to support and help facilitate students who have decided to change their name. We are aware that the central administration can sometimes make things complicated because it is usually attached to the legality of identity documents or tax forms. As a department, however, we would like to be more flexible and responsive, especially in our local communication with students. Please let Ms Sannie Germann (the student administrator) know if you do have a change to your first or last name and/or if would like us to address you differently from your official documentation. Ms Germann will then share this information with your instructors and study counsellors. You would need to follow the central administration procedures for faculty- and university-level changes.
