Student Address, Telephone, and Name Change Requests

Return to: Student Education Records  

Students are responsible for keeping their contact information accurate and current. Students may update their contact information by changing it on their myWalden university portal or by e-mailing changes to infochanges@waldenu.edu.

Students requesting corrections or changes to their name or Social Security Number must submit a signed written request by mail or by fax to 1-410-209-8044. These requests must include a Walden ID number or Social Security Number, and a copy of legal documentation of the requested change or correction. Legal documentation can be a copy of a driver’s license, Social Security card, marriage certificate, or court order, such as a divorce decree. Name changes need to reflect the exact name on the legal documentation provided: nicknames, middle names, alternate spellings, or abbreviations cannot be used in official university records, unless these are confirmed as legal names. For a correction to a Social Security Number, a copy of the Social Security card must be provided. This documentation will be maintained by the university to authenticate changed data.
