Change of Personal Information Procedures

Below are detailed instructions to change information on your student record, including your:

  • Address
  • Name
  • Social Security Number (SSN)
Address Information

Duquesne University must have on record addresses where students are physically located at the time they are pursuing their studies. Any change to your permanent or local address throughout the semester must be reported. In addition, it is required that any student who temporarily moves to a new location report their new, TEMPORARY address change. Students are required to provide such address changes within 14 days of the date the change occurred.

Up to four address types* should be reviewed and updated by students and will be stored and maintained in the Banner Student System. These address types are:

HOME – permanent residential address

LOCAL – address of residence for your studies during the semester if not residing at HOME or in an on-campus RESIDENCE hall

RESIDENTIAL – address in one of the on-campus residence halls

TEMPORARY – temporary relocation from HOME, LOCAL, or RESIDENTIAL address for your studies during the semester

*Upon graduation, students may add a DIPLOMA mailing address if it differs from HOME (or FOREIGN for international students).
Local and Temporary Address Updates

Local and temporary addresses can be updated by visiting the Personal Information page in DORI. 

Diploma Address Updates

Upon graduation, students may supply a DIPLOMA address if the diploma is to be mailed to an address other than the HOME/PERMANENT address (or FOREIGN address for international students). Students must check their addresses in SSB for accuracy. Should a diploma be returned to the university because an address is undeliverable, the student will be responsible for payment of fees to mail the diploma a second time.

Students can review their addresses and add a DIPLOMA address by visiting the Personal Information page in DORI.   

Name, Home/Permanent Address, and SSN Updates

Changes to Home/Permanent Address and Name are made using the Authorization to Change Personal Information. Print, complete, and sign the form. Address changes can be emailed to registrar@duq.edu. For name changes, take the form to the Office of the University Registrar with proof of the change, which would include a marriage license, a divorce decree, or a court document. Requests cannot be accepted over the phone or by a third party. Students in the School of Law should report changes to the Law School Registrar, and all international students should report changes to the Center for Global Engagement.

Changes to Social Security Number and/or Date of Birth can only be made by visiting the Office of the University Registrar.  Students in the School of Law must visit the Law School Registrar, and all international students should visit the Center for Global Engagement for these specific changes. Changes to SSN require the Social Security Card and a second form of ID that includes a photograph. Changes to Date of Birth require a copy of the Birth Certificate, passport, or driver's license.
