Name Change Request
NBCOT requires legal documentation in order to process a name change. Certificants who have had a name change must submit an official online name change request, along with the required documentation.
A name change can be requested on the Profile page of the certificant's MyNBCOT account.
The certificant should upload copies of their official documents. A scanned copy or a picture taken with a smartphone are both acceptable.
Accepted government-issued ID documents include: driver's license, state-issued ID, military ID, passport, or Social Security card.
The following documents will not be accepted as proof of a name change: student ID, marriage certificate, or divorce decree.
Upon receiving the completed request form and appropriate documentation, the certificant's record will be updated. The certificant will be notified by email that their name has been updated. Please allow up to three (3) business days for processing.
