What if I need to change my name or it is spelt incorrectly?

If you require a change of name and want this change reflected on your graduation documents, please visit the Changing your personal details page. Please ensure that your name is updated prior to completion of your final units to ensure that it is correct on your graduation documents.

It is possible to change the name that appears on your testamur and AHEGS after your award has been conferred, however, this incurs a fee (payment of Change of Name Replacement Testamur and purchase of a new AHEGS).  You will need to do your change of name through Student Services Hub and email studentcompletions@westernsydney.edu.au to advise you have completed your change of name and then place your order.
