Changing Your Name

Name of Record

A student's name of record can be officially changed by presenting documentation and a name change form at any CNM Campus, or emailing to records@cnm.edu. The form must be clear, legible, and printed on plain white paper.

Student must present at least two types of government issued identification showing the new name. Examples of acceptable name-change documentation include: marriage certificate, birth certificate, driver's license, original social security card or court order for legal name change.

Correct/Preferred Name

CNM also recognizes that students may wish to use first names that are different from their legal names on their diplomas, CNM student ID cards, and class rosters. For more information on requesting a preferred name, visit the Correct/Preferred Name Request page
