UC Davis WarnMe

At certain intervals during the year, students are prompted, via SISWeb, to provide or update contact information for the WarnMe system. This information will only be used when WarnMe is activated by campus emergency personnel. Students are not required to submit WarnMe information; however the SISWeb prompt will continue to inform students about this important service.

Visit the UC Davis WarnMe website for more information.

The Office of the University Registrar maintains your academic record-related information only. Other records not maintained by the Office of the University Registrar may require updating by other departments. For example, records involving employment will require updating by UC Davis Human Resources and issues regarding medical records may be directed to the UC Davis Student Health Center.

Name Change on University Record

To change your name on all of your university academic records after a legal name change (your student ID number will remain the same), you can complete the online Petition for Name Change on University Record webform and upload your supporting legal documentation. You may also use this form for name corrections.

If you don't have an active UC Davis computing services account, you may submit the paper form with your supporting legal documentation to the Office of the Unversity Registrar.

Acceptable legal documents verifying a name change:

  • Birth Certificate (acceptable only for correcting spelling errors).
  • Certificate of Naturalization papers.
  • Certificate of Registered Domestic Partnership.
  • Court Order (Final Judgment of Change of Name).
  • Divorce decree.
  • Driver's license.
  • F-1 or J-1 Student Visa or Permanent Resident card.
  • Marriage license.
  • Passport (Book or Card).
  • Permanent or Conditional Permanent Resident card.
  • Resident Alien card.
  • Uniformed Services Military ID card.

Not acceptable documents:

  • Petition of Name Change.
  • Social Security Card.
  • Petition for Naturalization.
  • Employee ID card.
  • Professional License Card.

To change a married name back to a maiden name, you must provide legal documentation other than a birth certificate.

Social Security Number Change on University Record

To submit, change, or correct your Social Security Number you may use the online Social Security Change webform and upload a copy of your Social Security Card.

If you don't have an active UC Davis computing services account, you may submit the paper form with a copy of your Social Security card to the Office of the Unversity Registrar.

Update Your Address

If you are a continuing student, you can update your address using SISWeb.  Under the Personal Information tab, select Update Address(es) and Phone(s).

If you no longer have access to SISweb, you can change your mailing address by completing and submitting the Address Update form.

Ethnicity Change on University Record

To change your ethnicity on your UC Davis record use the Ethnicity Change form.

Legal Sex Marker on University Record

To change your legal sex marker on your UC Davis record use the Legal Sex Marker Change form and upload a copy of your government-issued identification (driver's license, passport) or court record. The Office of the University Registrar acknowledges that sex markers on legal documents are not a complete picture of an individual's gender identity, and that there are structural barriers to completing the steps to legally change one's sex marker.

Change of Citizenship, Immigration & Visa

To correct your record, or to notify a Residence Deputy of a recent change to your Visa, Immigration or Citizenship, complete the Change of Citizenship, Immigration & Visa form.
