Name Change Requests

You must complete and submit a Name Change Request Form and the required documentation to make an official name change with the BOC. The required documentation varies according to the type of name change being requested. See below for details.

Please also notify your state regulatory agency of your legal name change.

BOC Exam Candidates: The BOC must receive your Name Change Request Form and required documentation 5 business days prior to your scheduled exam.

If you are changing your legal name…

Collect the following documentation:
1. Original legal document indicating name change (e.g., marriage license, divorce decree). Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you would like your original documentation returned; otherwise, we will destroy the documents;
OR
2. An official copy of the legal document which indicates reason for change of legal name (e.g., marriage license, divorce decree). This document must be notarized or contain the official raised seal of the department issuing the document (i.e., Department of Vital Statistics) or a stamp that clearly is an original and not a photocopy. Photocopies that are not notarized will not be accepted.
