Students should verify correct name and address for diplomas as soon as possible after applying for graduation. To ensure diplomas are mailed to the correct address, students are encouraged to update and verify address information prior to the last day of the term.
The name listed with the University is the name that will be printed on your diploma. In order to check and verify the correct spelling, capitalization, and punctuation of your name, students should login into My Sam. Once logged in, the name appearing in the top left corner of the entry screen is the name that will be printed.
If a revision is desired, students are encouraged to fill out and submit a Name Change form as soon as possible to ensure updates are implemented prior to diplomas being printed. If the change is being made prior to applying for graduation, the Name Change form should be submitted to the Payroll Office, otherwise submit the form to the Registrar's Office. Name change request forms must include an attached legal document.
To verify your permanent legal address, go to the My Sam "Campus Resources" tab and select Banner Self Service -> Personal Information -> View Address and Phones. Please make sure that your Permanent Legal Address is a correct address as it will be the address used to mail your diploma when it is printed and ready for mailing.
To update your Permanent Legal Address, go to the SamWeb "Student Records" tab and select "Address Change."
