To change your legal name on University records you will need to provide either an original or certified (witnessed/notarised) copy of evidence of name change (e.g. marriage certificate, civil union certificate, deed poll, amended birth certificate) to AskOtago.
You can upload certified documentation to eVision through the Request a change field in the Application form or My details sections.
Alternatively, you can visit the AskOtago Central Hub in the Information Services Building, Dunedin campus, or contact AskOtago:
If you need to make changes prior to graduating, the documentation should be provided at least 5 weeks prior to the ceremony.
