    • New social security card
    • Marriage certificate, divorce decree, or court papers
Notes
  • Name changes for active medical students should be made through SOM, not through UAB OneStop.
  • Name changes are only accepted for currently enrolled students.
  • MS4s: Your diploma is issued in your official name as recorded in the SOM Student Portal. Name changes after diplomas are ordered (typically a month before diploma date) incur a $25 re-order fee. Name changes cannot be made after your diploma date.
