This guide outlines the steps required for changing the name and/or username for a variety of accounts.

Faculty or Staff Name Changes

Faculty or Staff members needing or desiring to change their name in Active Directory and GullNet due to marriage, divorce, or other legal name change can do so through the following steps.

  • First, contact Human Resources (http://www.salisbury.edu/hr/)to submit a name change with the University.
  • Next, log into our Online Ticketing system (http://support.salisbury.edu/user) using your full email address and password.
  • In the selection of Logins, Accounts, and Access click on Report a Problem
  • Fill out the form as indicated. Exclamation points indicate required fields.
  • Click Save. You will receive a confirmation email that your ticket has been submitted.

Once submitted, we will begin processing your name change. Your name change will not occur until the change has first been entered in GullNet by Human Resources, so again it is important that you do that step first.

You will receive a confirmation via email when the change has occurred. You can check your ticket's progress at any time by logging into the Online Ticketing system.

Student Name Changes

Students needing or desiring to change their name in Active Directory and GullNet due to marriage, divorce, or other legal name change can do so through the following steps. Note that student name changes change only the display name; your username will remain the same. We are unable to fulfill requests for student username or alumni account name changes.

Once submitted, we will begin processing your name change. Your name change will not occur until the change has first been entered in GullNet by the Registrar, so again it is important that you do that step first.

You will receive a confirmation via email when the change has occurred.
