To ensure that your full legal name is spelled correctly on your diploma, we are asking you to confirm your diploma name. Please confirm your name as soon as possible.
In your WesPortal under ‘My Information’ click on Diploma Name. The name that we currently have on file will be displayed on this page. If your name is correct, please click on Confirm/Update button at the bottom of the page. If your name is not correct, please make any necessary corrections before selecting the Confirm/Update button.
Please note that you will only be able to update your name once per day – if you confirm your name in error, you will need to return to the page the following day to make any corrections.
If your name contains special characters or accents, please confirm the spelling of your name without the characters or accents. In order to make sure that the special characters or accents appear correctly on your diploma, you will be asked to link to the Special Character DiplomaName Confirmation form and send it to the Registrar’s Office.
To make a correction to your legal name for all other university records, you will need to bring a form of legal identification (birth certificate, passport, driver’s license, or legal name change document if your name has been legally changed) to the Registrar’s Office. The diploma name system will close on Monday, April 17th at 11:59pm. Name changes cannot be accommodated after this deadline.
Please make sure that this is correct in the Wes system so that it will be correct on your diploma.
