Throughout their candidature, students are responsible for keeping their personal particulars updated in the University's records in a timely manner. This means that students must notify the University within 5 working days of the effective date of change of the affected personal particulars. The University will not be accountable for delayed or lost mail due to incorrect or obsolete students' addresses and contacts. Students may check their particulars or amend their contact details via EduRec
Change of official name
Bring along a completed copy of the ‘Request Form for Official Name Change
’, and the original and a photocopy of your passport or NRIC for verification to the Student Service Centre.
If you changed your name during your course of study but failed to inform the University in a timely manner and you have already been conferred your degree, then your name as presently reflected in our official records, will be inscribed on your degree scroll. No further requests for name changes will be entertained.
Change in citizenship
Bring along the original relevant documents for verification at the Student Service Centre.
Change in Citizenship
• Certificate of Citizenship; or
• Pink Singapore NRIC; or
• Pink Singapore NRIC Collection Slip
Obtaining Singapore Permanent Residence
• Blue Singapore NRIC; or
• Blue Singapore NRIC Collection Slip
In the event that you are unable to produce your Singapore NRIC or collection slips before the end of the third instructional week, the citizenship change in the current semester will only be effected if you submit following documents before the end of the semester concerned (i.e. by end of reading week).
