The VCUCard Office will issue you a VCUCard with your legal name entered into the database by either the Office of Records & Registration or the Human Resources department. To request a different name displayed on your VCUCard, please review the information below. Patrons are strongly encouraged to submit these types of requests prior to receiving their first VCUCard.
Your department Personnel Administrator (PA) will need a copy of your new Social Security card and an updated Personal Data Form (Word) indicating the legal name change. Your PA will review your documents and provide the appropriate paperwork to Human Resources.
Records and Registration will need a copy of your new Social Security card (or applicable documentation) and an updated Personal Update Form. The form should be returned to the Office of Records and Registration in Harris Hall, room 1100. If you are both an employee AND a current student, please also provide your new Social Security Card and updated form to your department Personnel Administrator (PA) and your PA will send the appropriate documentation to Human Resources.
Once your information has been updated, you can visit one of our offices to exchange your current VCUCard with an updated one at no cost. Please allow a minimum of three (3) business days for the change to take effect. You can also call the VCUCard Office during normal business hours to confirm this update.
If you no longer identify with your legal name, please contact Records and Registration to update the affirmed first name you identify with. You are strongly encouraged to submit this request prior to receiving your first VCUCard. Please call our office to confirm your name change has been updated before scheduling an appointment.
If you currently have a VCUCard and your request is approved, you will be required to surrender your current VCUCard in exchange for the new one.
