If you are an employee (faculty, staff or student), Federal regulations require employers to validate that the employee’s name on record exactly matches the name which appears on the individual’s Social Security card to ensure proper tax reporting. Thus, in order to reflect your name change on your personnel and payroll records, you must present your Social Security card which reflects your new name to the Payroll Office, Old Main 206.

If you have not requested a change of name with the Social Security Administration, please apply for a new Social Security card with the nearest Social Security Administration Office. Once you receive your new Social Security card, please bring it to the appropriate office.

Marshall University is aware that many of its constituents routinely use a first name or full name other than their legal name. As part of being a welcoming and inclusive campus, MU will implement changes to increase the use of preferred names in the course of MU business and education. Preferred Name changes require the same procedure but do not require production of a Social Security card.

Students who need proof of enrollment for insurance, scholarships, etc. may fill out the Enrollment Verification Form and return it to our office.  (Please leave the Office Use Only section blank.)  We can mail or fax the completed form to the intended recipient.  Please include the recipient’s name and mailing address or fax number under the Mail Statement section.

Apostille Certification
An apostille is an internationally recognized process to authenticate legal documents.  Some countries may request that legal documents, such as a transcript or diploma, have an Apostille Seal.  If you need your Marshall University diploma or transcript to have this authentication, please complete the authentication request form and return to the Office of the Registrar.  If you are requesting this authentication for a transcript, a transcript request form must accompany this request.

FERPA
The Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student academic records.  Schools may not disclose educational information to others, whether over the phone or in person, without the student’s written consent.  This information includes usernames, grades, GPA, Social Security number, race, gender, religion, or country of citizenship.  FERPA allows only directory information to be disclosed without written consent.  This includes name, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, major, dates of attendance, degree, and honors.  For more information regarding FERPA, click here.

Students can add a proxy through MILO in myMU by selecting the Information Release tab and then choosing “Proxy Management.”  Students must select which information may be provided to their proxy (academic, financial aid, financial, and general).  Instructions are available here.  A designated proxy will only be given information with the confirmation of a passphrase to Registrar staff.
