Employee Name Changes

Human Resources uses the legal name as an employee’s primary name for all official employee records and payroll documents. Primary name changes for faculty and staff require the assistance of an HR Central Specialist to verify the request in an effort to protect employee identity and data accuracy.

To request a change in first, middle, or last names on record with Human Resources, please contact HR Central at HRCentral@depaul.edu. Please note that employees must validate that the requested name change reflects what is listed on their Tax ID/SSN Name. Employees may provide a copy of their updated and original Social Security Card listing the new name by:

  • In-person appointment with an HR Central Specialist at the Office of Human Resources
  • Fax to HR Central at (312)476-3231
  • Interoffice to HR Central
