Birth Date

Occasionally an error is made when entering your birth date into our data system.

If you are a current student and your birth date is incorrect, please visit us to file a Change of Name form. Come prepared with a photocopy of a legal document which shows your correct date of birth.

Changes generally occur within a day of when the correction request is received, and will appear on your official academic record. Some IU Bloomington computer applications may take an additional to 24 hours to update.

Former Students

If you are a former student and you are not currently enrolled or are no longer living in Bloomington, please send your birth date corrections along with the following:

  • A legible photocopy of your birth certificate, state driver's license, or passport
  • Your signature

You can make your requests by mail, fax, or email.

  • Address
    Indiana University Office of the Registrar
    ATTN: Birth Date Change
    408 N. Union
    Bloomington, IN 47405-3800
  • Fax
    (812) 855-3311, ATTN: Birth Date Change

Faxes must be legible in order to be received. Faxes tend to black out due to security features on some documents.

Mail requests should include a student request letter as well as the photocopied birth certificate.

For email requests, required documentation should be scanned and included as attachments. Please be aware that IT experts do not consider scanned documents to be secure.

Student Employees

Hourly Employees with birth date corrections should fill out a Personal Data Change Form and take it to the Human Resource Records and Benefits Office, Poplars E165.

Academic appointees with birth date corrections must also complete a Personal Data Change Form. You’ll take it to Academic Personnel Policies and Services, Bryan Hall 016.

Please come prepared with a photocopy of a legal document that shows the correct date of birth, such as a birth certificate, passport, or state driver's license.
