Let us know right away of any change in your address by completing our interactive electronic Change of Address Form [requires login].
For students enrolled in licensure programs and changing location to a new state: Please visit our Licensure and Credentialing Information page. Review the licensure information for students and applicants document regarding your specific program. Lesley University uses your "Local Address" to determine location for licensure disclosure purposes. If you do not report a local address, we then use your "Permanent Address."
To report a name change, submit a Student Change of Name Form to the Lynx Solution Center. All name changes must be requested in a letter or on the Change of Name and Address form. Email requests are not accepted.
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.
Name changes for alumni are handled as follows, with regard to transcripts and diplomas:
- For a name change after graduation from Lesley, legal documentation, such as a court order or marriage license, must be provided.
- 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.
