Name Change Form

The name on your student record should be your complete and legal name. Indian Hills Community College reserves the right to require adequate and appropriate documentation when evaluating and processing all name change requests. Approved name changes may take up to two weeks to take effect. A name change will not affect your network login, MyHills account, nor email.

To correct misspelling or transposed names you may provide either a driver’s license, social security card, birth certificate or valid U.S. passport.

To change a name due to marriage, divorce or court order you must provide either the official documentation or a REAL ID (with yellow star in right-hand corner) or a valid U.S. passport.

Please complete the form below to start this process. Documentation may be presented at Bennett Student Services OneStop or emailed to registrar@indianhills.edu.
