Updating Your Account Information in the Event of a Name Change

Explanation of the steps involved in getting your various Parkland accounts updated to reflect your name change.

1. Fill out an Employee Record Change form for Human Resources.

2. Once that is done, fill out a Request for Services form for Campus Technologies.  Please fill in the Location and Contact sections at the top (make sure that there is a good way to reach you - via your Parkland phone number, Parkland email, or an outside method i.e. gmail or cell phone) and then scroll down to the Network section at the bottom of the page. In the blank space provided, please request that your accounts be updated and enter your  new name along with your Colleague ID number.

3. You will be contacted by Campus Technologies to arrange a time for this to happen.  We will update your GroupWise email and computer login accounts first. We will then notify the Programming Support Services team and they will call you to discuss your My.Parkland and Colleague accounts.  Please continue to login to My.Parkland / Colleague with your old name until that happens. 

Additional Information:
- All passwords will remain the same
- All email will exist in your account, the same as it was previously
- An alias will be created in the email system for 90 days so that you can receive mail at both addresses to give you time to make the transition
