Gender Change

Students needing to make changes to their gender as listed on their academic records will need to present the appropriate documentation to the Office of the Registrar.

Students may email all appropriate documentation to reghelp@uga.edu. Please be aware that emailed forms and documentation must be sent from a UGA email address. Do not include any documentation that includes a SSN if sending by email.

Students must complete, sign, and submit the Gender Change Form (PDF) along with one of the following:

  • A valid Georgia driver's license reflecting the new gender.
  • If a Georgia driver's license is not available, a government-issued photo identification reflecting the new gender may be submitted if accompanied by a copy of the court order or physician's letter certifying the gender change.

Students may bring all appropriate documentation in person to the Office of the Registrar in the Holmes/Hunter Academic Building, send the documentation via fax to 706-583-0319, or mail to Office of the Registrar, Holmes/Hunter Academic Building, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia 30602-6113.

Please note: Gender Change Forms and documentation will not be accepted via email.
