How do I change my name?

You will need to change your name with the UF Registrar, College of Pharmacy, Board of Pharmacy and NABP.

Step 1: UF Registrar
Complete the registrar’s Name Change Request Form and mail the form and all supporting documentation to:

Office of the University Registrar
Attn. Request to Change Official Record
PO Box 114000
222 Criser Hall
Gainesville FL 32611-4000

Step 2: College of Pharmacy
Email the Student Affairs Office at pharmdsa@cop.ufl.edu to notify us that you have submitted a name change request with the UF Registrar.  We will update your name in Salesforce and PharmAcademic once we verify the University has updated your official records.

Step 3: Florida Board of Pharmacy
Visit https://floridaspharmacy.gov/help-center/how-do-i-change-my-name/ to update the name on your Intern License.

Step 4: NABP
Visit https://nabp.pharmacy/e-profile/faqs/#change-name for name change instructions.  Ensure that the name you provide when setting up your e-Profile matches your school-issued or state-issued photo identification. This means the last, first, and middle name or initial, and suffixes must be entered in your e-Profile exactly as they appear on your identification. If the name that you provide for your e-Profile does not match the names on the IDs that you present the day of the assessment, you will not be able to sit for the PCOA or NABP.
