Name changes must occur through the Student Records (Students) or HR Department (Staff and Faculty) before we can process name changes for Novell/Blackboard accounts.
You may submit your request at any time, but to prevent loss of access and data during the Academic Semester, we only process requests between semesters:
- Late December/Early January
- Mid-Late August.
- Make sure your important contacts realize your email address will change (Copy their addresses to a safe location so you can send them your new email address when it is assigned)
- Save/print any emails you wish to keep (Email will not be moved or auto-forwarded to your new account)
For questions regarding this process please call the Technology Help Desk at (616)234-4357(HELP).
