To make name changes in the D2L Brightspace environment, please visit our Admissions department in Student Central to fill out a name change request form. Be sure to circle Yes for the options labeled, "Does your name displayed in D2L need to change?" and "Does your university email need to change?". The Admissions office will make the initial changes in Banner and forward the request to the proper I.T. office to make the email and D2L changes.


If you are unable to come to campus, you can visit http://records.gfcmsu.edu/documents/forms/ChangeOfNameForm.pdf to print the form, fill it out, and mail or fax it to Admissions at the information located at the top of the card.


Note: Once the changes have been made by I.T. you may be unable to login to D2L Brightspace until the next day. If you’ve recently requested a name change through Admissions and you are unable to login to D2L Brightspace, please contact the eLearning Department by phone at 406-771-4440, by email at elearning@gfcmsu.edu, via our online chat located at http://elearning.gfcmsu.edu, or feel free to stop in! We can confirm that this is the reason you are unable to login and help you get in if it’s not the reason.
