The original FAUNetID (username) is not subject to change. The only two exceptions are if an error was made in the spelling of your name that affected the FAUNet ID assigned to you or if you have legally changed your name. Prior to changing your FAUNet ID, you must have had your legal name change recorded in the University’s database. Faculty and staff need to contact Human Resources; students need to contact the Registrar’s Office. Once your name has been officially changed, you may request a FAUNet ID change by submitting a FAUNet ID Change request.
