Can I change my FSUID?

Changing your FSUID is a prolonged, manual process requiring the involvement of several FSU departments.

It is NOT recommended for the following reasons:

  1. During the at least 3-4 business days it takes the  process to complete, you may be unable to access any services on campus, including:
    • FSU Wi-Fi
    • Workstations or on-campus computers

You are NOT authorized to change your FSUID UNLESS your reason meets the criteria below.

  • Identity theft or safety concerns - If you have been the victim of identity theft or may be the victim of stalking or a situation where your safety is in question, you may request an FSUID change after:
    • Contacting the Florida State University Police Department (FSUPD) at 850-644-1234 to ensure that a police report has been filed.
    • If you’ve already reported the situation to another law enforcement agency, you must still contact the FSUPD so that they can obtain the relevant Case information.
  • Legal name change (employee) - If you are a current FSU employee and you’ve had a legal name change, you may request an FSUID change after:
    • Registering your new name with the Social Security Office (https://faq.ssa.gov/en-us/Topic/article/KA-01981)
    • Updating your name with FSU Human Resources:
      • Contact your department’s Human Resources representative or
      • Contact FSU Human Resources at 850-644-6034 or hr@fsu.edu
    • If you are also a current/former student of FSU, you must also update your name with the Registrar (850-644-1050, registrar@fsu.edu)
  • Employee with student-style FSUID - Current employees with student-style* FSUIDs may request an FSUID change to obtain an employee-style FSUID. However, for reasons detailed previously, this is NOT recommended.
    • *FSUIDs follow either a student-style or employee-style format:
      • Student-style FSUID: Uses a person’s initials, the year the FSUID was created, and can use one or more letters to distinguish the account from others.
        For example, jd10z.
      • Employee-style FSUIDs: Uses an a combination of a person’s first initial and last name, but can also feature a middle initial or numbers to distinguish the account from others.
        For example, jdoe2.
