Change Contact Information
At some point during your college career, you may need to change your address, phone number or even your name. It's important to let UW-Green Bay know of these changes so we can keep your student records up-to-date. Here are some instructions for how to change your personal information.
Address or Phone Change
You can easily update your address, phone number and other personal information via your online student account in SIS.
- Log in to SIS, and the “Student Center” page will appear.
- Under "Contact Information", click on the item you wish to edit.
- Click “Edit.”
- Enter the correct information.
- Click "Save" and "OK."
Name changes are a little more complicated. If you need to change your name, you will need to update your information with the Registrar's Office. Fill out the Name Change Form (pdf) and provide documentation (driver’s license with the new name) to GBOSS (SS1100). If you're a student at the Manitowoc, Marinette or Sheboygan campuses, work with your campus Student Services.
24hr Lapse in Canvas: If you currently use Canvas for your courses, you will temporarily lose access while your name change is processed. The outage typically lasts 24 hours. If you would like us to wait to process your changes, you can indicate which weekday you prefer.
Update Information After Graduation
You have access to your SIS account for for six months after graduating. At that point, you'll be prompted to reset your password, and that will give you access for another six months. Once SIS access has expired, you'll need to contact the GBOSS at 920-465-2111 to update any information. Personally identifiable information change requests (name change, gender change or Social Security number) must be validated with appropriate documentation.
