  • Name and Address Changes

    Let us know right away of any change in your address. You can notify us in any of the following ways:

    All name changes must be requested in a letter or on the Change of Name and Address form. Email requests are not accepted.

    Current Students

    A name-change request must be accompanied by legal documentation, such as a court order or marriage license. The name change will be reflected on the student record, and a reference to the former name will be maintained for search purposes only.

    Alumni

    Name changes for alumni are handled as follows, with regard to transcripts and diplomas:

    • For a name change after graduation from Lesley, legal documentation must be provided, as above.
    • The name under which the student graduated from Lesley will remain on the transcript, with the exception of a former student who has undergone gender reassignment.
    • If it’s necessary to verify your credentials for another party, we suggest you provide that party with the same documentation of name change you provide to Lesley.
    • If you’d like an updated copy of the diploma, include with your name-change documentation a check for $50, a signed copy of the Diploma Reprint Request (PDF) form and either the original diploma, or a notarized statement that the original diploma has been lost or destroyed.

    Your new diploma may look quite different from your original.

    A statement will be included with the new diploma, indicating that it is a reissue and including the former name.

Students wishing to register for an Independent Study must first obtain a faculty sponsor. Once a sponsor is acquired, an Independent Study Course Contract is completed by the sponsoring faculty member in consultation with the student and departmental leadership. After approval the contract is then forwarded to the Office of the University Registrar by the student for processing. Faculty and staff please note: the Independent Study Course Contract may be accessed via the Lesley Faculty Sharepoint folder.
