As Queen's University is committed to the integrity of its student records, each student is required to provide either on application for admission or for registration, his or her complete, legal name. Any requests to change a name by means of alteration, deletion, substitution, or addition must be accompanied by appropriate supporting documentation.
The complete legal name for Canadian citizens is defined as that name by which they were registered at birth or that name which the individual has assumed via a change, for example, marriage or official change of name.
The complete legal name for those who are not Canadian citizens is that which is provided on passport and/or immigration documents.
