Name & Address Change

Name Change

If you are an OU student, you need to submit an Application for Change of Name.

You will need to have your Sooner ID number to complete this form. If you do not have a Sooner ID number, or do not know your Sooner ID number, please contact Academic Records in order to proceed with your name change. Please call (405) 325-4147 or email namechanges@ou.edu.

The four reasons for name changes, along with their allowable documentation are as follows:

  • Clerical Correction
    You will need to upload a copy of your driver's license, OU Student ID, or other government issued ID showing your correct name.

  • Marriage
    You will need to upload a copy of your driver's license, marriage license, or other government issued ID showing your new name.

  • Divorce
    You will need to upload a copy of the court order showing the change of name.

  • Court Order
    You will need to upload a copy of the court order showing the change of name.

Former students please note that your name change request will be denied if you are not also requesting an updated diploma. See Ordering a Replacement Diploma with a Change of Name for diploma ordering instructions.

If you are an OU employee, you can change your name on your employment records by providing the Payroll and Personnel Records Department a copy of your new social security card. Payroll and Personnel Records; NEL Building, Room 244; (405) 325-2961.

If you are an OU student and an OU employee and want to change your name on both your student records and your employment records, you will need to go through both processes described above. If you change your name on your social security card you should change your name on your employment records, but you are not required to change your name on your student records.

If you are a former OU student, you can update your alumni directory information through the OU Alumni Association website. Any changes made to this system will apply only to the alumni site and will not affect your student records or your employment records.

Address Change

Current OU students log in to one.ou.edu using their OUNet ID and password, and update their student address information with the University online through the Personal Information channel on the home tab.

In addition, international students must also report to the International Student Services office in Farzeneh Hall, Room 144.

OU students who are also OU employees also need to update their address information with the Office of Human Resources online through the PeopleSoft Self-Service Web page.
