Name Change Request

Central Washington University continues to be responsive to the needs of our student community. We are excited to announce that students now have the ability to be identified by their preferred first name including in their CWU email address. For example, if you would prefer to be known by your nickname, your middle name or another name different from your legal name, simply complete the form below to request the change.

You may also change your preferred first name in MyCWU. Information on how to change your preferred first name may be found online here.

Your legal name is still required for certain transactions for financial aid and for tax purposes. If you have questions or if you want to change your legal name, please contact Registrar Services at 509-963-3001 or
