Accounts Name Changes


When a member of the APU Community changes his/her legal name, the University's system of record, PeopleSoft, must also be updated.

Requesting Service

Faculty and staff: Provide the necessary documentation for the name change to the Human Resources. The Human Resources department will processes the change. Depending on the nature of a name change, it may be necessary to have additional systems updated. Contact The IMT Support Center at or (626) 815-5050.

Students: Provide the necessary documentation for the name change to the appropriate university Registrar’s office. Once the Registrar’s office has updated your student record you may submit a ticket to the IMT Support Desk.
